[ARCHIVED] Public Notice Regarding Tax Deeds


BUTTE, Mont. – February 1, 2023 – Tax Lien and Tax Deed Process Encourages Delinquent Tax payers to Pay Back Taxes Now to Avoid Additional Fees.

For taxpayers that have 2019 tax liens, they have until February 28, 2023, to redeem their property from the tax deed list by paying the first half of their 2022 taxes and their full year of 2019 taxes.

When a tax lien becomes three years delinquent, it goes on the tax deed list. If delinquent taxes are not paid by 5:00 p.m. on February 28, 2023, a title litigation guarantee cost will be added to the parcel. The cost is based on the liability that the City and County of Butte-Silver Bow has against the property, and there may be a substantial fee that will become part of the redemption costs, such as fees for processing as well as title guarantees.

The Butte-Silver Bow Treasurer and Assessor are encouraging everyone with delinquent taxes to pay them before the February 28, 2023, deadline, as the amount of money saved by the taxpayer will be significant. We ask taxpayers who are struggling to please contact the Treasurer’s office tax department to discuss your situation so we can assist in finding a resolution.

If taxes currently due for the current tax year have been paid, the treasurer shall accept a partial payment equal to the delinquent taxes, including penalty and interest, for one or more full tax years. Payment of taxes for delinquent taxes must be applied to the taxes that have been delinquent the longest. The payment of taxes for the current tax year is not a redemption of the property tax lien for any delinquent tax year.

The amount of interest and costs continues to accrue until the date of redemption. The total amount of penalty, interest and costs that must be paid for, and redemption must be calculated by the treasurer as of the date of payment.

Montana’s real estate and centrally assessed properties are billed in November of each year and ends in May of the following year.

There is property tax assistance available to all taxpayers. If you have received a delinquent notice by mail your property is at risk for additional fees, and you are strongly encouraged to contact the Butte-Silver Bow Treasurer’s office immediately for assistance at: 406-497-6303.
