Taxes are a fact of life. If you are a resident or business owner in Big Sky you are collecting or paying taxes in one or maybe three major buckets: Property Tax, Lodging Tax, and Resort Tax. Join us as we gather a panel of experts to offer insight in to how these taxes are collected and where that money goes. Understanding these complex systems can be mystifying but are an important part of a high functioning society. Come out or tune in and engage with your community.

Speakers Include

  • Dan Clark, MSU Local Government Center
  • Justin Swanson, Chief Financial Officer of Gallatin County
  • Vicki Tilstra, Finance Officer of Madison County
  • Dax Schieffer, Voices of Montana Tourism
  • Danny Bierschwale, Big Sky Resort Tax
