McGrath Issues Statement On Court’s Ruling in Tax Credit Case
HELENA – Montana Attorney General Mike McGrath released the following statement today in response to District Court Judge Thomas Honzel’s order dismissing a lawsuit filed by Sen. John Cobb to block a $140-per-homeowner tax credit. McGrath’s office had filed a motion to dismiss the suit earlier this month, contending that Sen. Cobb did not have legal standing to bring the lawsuit.
Thanks to the timely decision of the court, the state can go ahead and process the tax credits as previously authorized by the Schweitzer administration. This was a time-sensitive case, since state income tax information will be showing up in our mailboxes any day.
