This means that a typical residence in Missoula County is assessed more than two and a half times as much in property taxes as a residence of equal market value in Rosebud County. Some of this difference represents the additional or higher cost services (e.g., a paid fire department) provided in the urbanized areas of Missoula County, but most of the difference arise because Rosebud's property tax base includes the Colstrip power plants, thus enabling it to levy relatively low mill rates.
