Montana warns of scams targeting property tax rebates

Bozeman Daily Chronicle

The state is warning people that scammers are seeking to capitalize on the property tax rebate application process and said it will now issue all rebates by a paper check sent through the mail to combat fraud.

Starting Aug. 24, all checks will be sent via mail instead of the option of direct deposit.

In a press release, the department said it has gotten applications where people entered banking information that does not match with the department’s records. While some of those could be from qualified people who have changed banks, the department said some are fraudulent.
