Online Payment Now Available For Livestock Per Capita Fees
The Montana Department of Revenue is mailing livestock per capita fee bills this week. For the first time, livestock owners can pay online at reportyourlivestock.mt.gov. In the past, they could just report online. Payments are due on Nov. 30, either electronically or by mail. “The department wants to make it more convenient for livestock owners to report their livestock and pay their fees,” said Director Mike Kadas, Montana Department of Revenue. “The new online system should be efficient and effective, making it easier for livestock owners to do business.” Livestock owners who prefer to pay by check can still do so, and can mail it to the address on their bill.
Starting next year, a new law will change the payment schedule. In 2016, livestock per capita fees will be due May 31 instead of Nov 30 to cut down the time between reporting and payment. March 1 is the deadline for livestock owners to report livestock they own as of February 1. Livestock owners will be able to report and pay online at the same time, and track their reporting history.
