M&M Financial has been successfully resolving back tax liabilities for small businesses and individuals in Montana since 2009 and nationwide since 2005.  We deal with the IRS and State taxing authorities for you, so you do not have to!  
If you or your business owes the Montana Department of Revenue back-taxes we recommend first reviewing the Montana Taxpayer Resources and Programs.

Below is some information that will help you start resolving your state tax liabilities.  If you have questions and would like to talk to a licensed Tax Resolution Specialist please do not hesitate to call us at 866-487-5624.


​Montana Department of Revenue (MT-DOR) has a few options available for businesses and individuals struggling to pay their tax obligations.  

​If you owe MT-DOR and you can afford to pay your liability in full within 12 months, you may be able to easily set up your payment plan online with the Taxpayer Access Point.  

A completed financial statement form will be required if –
  • You need more than 12 months to pay
  • Your desired monthly payment is less than $50
​If you need more than 12 months to pay or your desired monthly payment is less than $50, the state will file a tax lien against you.  

​If your business owes the Montana Department of Labor and Industry, you can expect similar payment terms.  


Penalty Relief

​MT-DOR does not have an Offer in Compromise program available to settle your tax debt for a lesser amount.  

​The only way we’ve discovered to convince the MT-DOR to remove penalties is to prove that the accrual of the back-taxes was due to written advice from the MT-DOR.  Other than that, it seems you are pretty much stuck with the penalties.  


​The Montana Department of Revenue has some flexibility when it comes to back tax liabilities.  Each case varies based on factors such as your compliance history, type of tax owed and total amount past due.  Here are some case examples in your state negotiated by M&M.
