The Resort Tax Board serves on a voluntary basis and oversees collection and appropriation of Big Sky’s local 3% sales tax. The board meets monthly, reviews applications for funding in May and appropriates funding in June.

Resort Tax Board Members serve a four-year term once elected in a May special election in even-numbered years. This year, two of the five seats will be open. If only two candidates have filed, an election won’t be necessary, and no ballots will be sent. If there are more than two candidates and an election is necessary, ballots will be mailed between April 18-23.

To be on the ballot for the May 8, 2018 election, contact the Gallatin County Elections Office at 406-582-3060 or The last day to file is February 12, 2018 at 5:00 PM.

Please note, the law states a candidate must reside in the Big Sky Resort Area District (not just a land owner). See the link below for the candidacy form:
