While Montana has no statewide sales tax, some municipalities and cities (especially large tourist destinations) charge their own local sales taxes on most purchases. There are additional taxes on tourism-related businesses such as hotels and campgrounds (7%) and rental car companies (4%).
While Montana does not collect a sales tax, excise taxes are levied on the sale of certain products, including alcohol, cigarettes & tobacco, and gasoline. These excise taxes are passed on to the consumer in the goods' price.
