CHS and Montana Department of Revenue Settle

Posted: Updated:
LAUREL -

CHS and the Montana Department of Revenue ended a dispute over the property tax valuation of a refinery in Laurel. The settlement frees up millions of dollars.

CHS protested $16 million in property taxes from 2009 to 2012. The company will get back $4 million dollars as a part of the settlement, which is approximately a 15 percent reduction in the refinery's assessment.

The other $12 million will be divided, not evenly, among Laurel Schools, Yellowstone County, and the state. The parties are working with local officials to determine the precise refund amounts.
