Gov. Bullock Talks Business Equipment Tax Exemption
State officials joined a Helena business owner Friday to highlight a new law that will cut taxes on Montana businesses.
Great Harvest Bread Company owner Ray Clum gave Governor Steve Bullock and Senator Bruce Tutvedt a tour of his business.
Starting January 1st, a new state law will exempt about 10,000 Montana businesses from paying and reporting the business equipment tax.
"When you look at even a mixing bowl costs $1,200, they're significant costs. And it's significant costs for a startup business, and a small business. If one of these ever had to be replaced, it's that much more significant."
Bullock says this law will save Montana businesses 11 million dollars per year.
