DELINQUENT TAX OPINION
GIVEN BY RANKIN
Attorney General Wellington D.
Rankin has ruled that county treas
urers may remit the penalty of 10
per cent on delinquent taxes if the
taxpayers makes claim for it before
June 1, 1921.
The question was raised by tKe
county attorney of Deer Lodge coun
ty when he asked: "In remitting the
penalty for taxes delinquent that have
been paid, shall interest be charged
from November 80, 1920, to the date
the delinquent taxes were paid?
I/i discussing the question, Mr. Ran
"It is evident that the legislature
intended to remit only the 10 per
cent penalty on delinquent taxes paid
at any time before October 1, 1921;
also that the penalty alone was to
be refunded on taxes that were allow
ed to go delinquent November 30,
1920, and have since been paid and
this only in case claim was made
therefor prior to June 1, 1921. Had
it been intended to remit or refund
the interest accured, it seems that
the act would read 'penalty and in
terest' instead of penalty only. To
make it more certain and clear, the
last proviso of the section reads,
'Provided further, that all delinquent
taxes for the year 1920 ' shall bear
interest at the rate of 1 per cent per
month from November 30, 1920, un
"This, I think, clearly indicates the
intention of the legislature not to re
mit or refund interest on delinquent
taxes and clearly answers your ques
"It is. therefore, my opinion that
under provision of house substitute
for senate bill No. 95, being chapter
2 of the Seventeenth session laws,
the county treasurer may refund only
the penalty on delinquent taxes for
1920, and should collect interest on
such delinquent taxes at 1 per cent
per month from November 80, 1920,
to the date the delinquent taxes are
