This amount must be deposited in the Montana subaccount of the manufacturer’s qualified escrow account within 30 days after the end of the quarter indicated above. Mont. Code Ann. § 16-11-403(2)(a) requires payments to be “adjusted for inflation.” Mont. Code Ann. § 16-11-402(1) defines “adjusted for inflation” as “increased in accordance with the formula for inflation adjustment set forth in Exhibit C to the Master Settlement Agreement. Each year, this formula increases 3% or the actual inflation rate, whichever is greater. Because the actual inflation rate cannot be determined until the end of 2008, tobacco product manufacturers required to make quarterly escrow payments will be required, in their quarterly escrow payments, to deposit an amount that has been cumulatively adjusted for inflation by 3%. When the inflation rate for 2008 has been determined, manufacturers will be advised and then have until April 15, 2009, to deposit any additional money, if necessary, to satisfy the actual inflation amount under the Act. The 2007 inflation rate, increased by 3%, is 37.20212. Multiplying the 2008 base escrow deposit amount $.0188482, by the inflation rate, 37.20212%, equals the cumulative inflation adjustment amount of $.0070119. Adding the base escrow deposit amount, $.0188482, to the cumulative inflation adjustment amount, $.0070119, equals $.0258601. * Montana Department of Justice 2008 Quarterly Certificate of Escrow Deposit Page 1 of 2 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkflow.com Part 5: Financial Institution Name of Financial Institution: Escrow Agent Contact Name and Title: Mailing Address: Telephone Number: Escrow Account Number: FAX: Montana Subaccount Number:_______________ Attach a copy of the financial institution’s receipt or other proof of deposit of the proper escrow payment.
