ExxonMobil Corp. announced Friday that it will pay its 2012 Yellowstone County property tax bill of $5.5 million.

“You already have two refinery protests, so you don’t need three,” the company told county treasurer Max Lenington.

“I’m real proud of them. That’s cool. They’ve never protested their taxes,” Lenington said. “That’s what makes them so unique.”

CHS, which operates an oil refinery in Laurel, has protested some of its property taxes since 2009 and indicated it would fight part of its 2012 bill of $8.3 million.

Phillips 66, formerly ConocoPhillips, indicated it also will protest some of its $7.9 million property tax bill for 2012.
