Feds release PILT money to Montana counties


Counties across New Mexico will receive more than $38.5 million through the 2017 Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) program, New Mexico congressional representatives announced Tuesday.

PILT are Federal payments to local governments that help offset losses in property taxes due to non-taxable Federal lands within their boundaries.

Annual PILT payments are calculated based on each county's acres of federal land and population.

"PILT investments often serve as critical support for local communities", Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke said in a press release, "as they juggle planning and paying for basic services, such as public safety, firefighting, social services and transportation". The payments are Wyoming's share of the record $464.6 million distributed nationwide this year, the largest amount ever allocated in the PILT program's 40-year history. "As ranking member on the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee that oversees the Interior Department's budget, I will do everything I can to ensure this program receives full funding going forward, so we can continue to support these counties for hosting valuable federal lands".
