Billings City Council approves endorsement for local option sales tax

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The Billings City Council reconsiders the motion tabling a local option tax proposal known as Authorize Community Transformation, or ACT.

City Council members took the local option sales tax motion off the table, which led to a vote approving the endorsement of ACT. ACT is an organization promoting passage of a local sales tax option in the 2017 legislative session. If state lawmakers allow the measure to be voted on, and if Billings voters approve the measure, it would mean a local option tax of up to 3-cents per dollar. The tax would be on certain goods and services and would last no longer than a decade.
