Big Sky 55 will have a “Rally for Tax Fairness” at noon Monday in the rotunda at the Montana state Capitol.

The public may attend.

It will feature speeches by former Gov. Brian Schweitzer, former Cascade County Commissioner Jane Weber and Big Sky 55+ board chair Terry Minow.

Speakers will address the tax shift taking place in Montana, which has led to average residential property tax increases of 43%, while large corporations in the state receive tax cuts at Montanans’ expense, event organizers said.

Big Sky 55+ is an advocacy organization that seeks to empower Montanans 55 and older in public policy.
