In Montana Property taxes primarily go to running the school district the property is located in ....if that district builds new schools due to population increases then property taxes go up.

The other way is for the valuation of the land to go sky high due to nearby annexation or people coming in from out of state, paying over the asking price, setting up a "conservation easement" and then sitting back and doing nothing with it. It reduces the available land for commerce while driving up the prices at the market.

This has little to nothing to do with any elected official, just people with money who decide they know whats best for the locals who happen to live in their second or third vacation home. The locals can just go work at the hardware chain and get a second full time job at Olive Garden to make ends meet.

You failed to mention the other side of the coin. A real estate transaction requires, not only a buyer but also a seller. No one is forcing the seller to accept the the amount over the asking price, BUT they gladly take it. IF they put the best interest of the community, above their own GREED, they would turn down the offer. It's the out of state buyer AND the greedy local seller doing it together.

In the Ag sector the land represents the producer's pension plan and or his children's inheritance.
