Please note that the Montague County Tax Collector only collects property tax for the County and other jurisdictions. We are not responsible for the setting of tax rates or determining property values.

Your tax rates are set by the governing bodies of the applicable taxing jurisdictions for your property.

Information about dates and times is posted in newspapers and on websites prior to the hearings.
