Property Tax Relief Applications

Idaho's Property Tax Relief Programs

Some homeowners qualify for Idaho’s property tax relief programs

Homeowners who qualify have until April 15 to apply for two different programs that can help them with their property taxes.

The Idaho Property Tax Reduction (Circuit Breaker) program reduces the amount of property taxes that qualified applications pay on a home and up to one acre of land. Qualified applicants could see up to $1320 reduction.

To qualify, you must own and live in your home as your primary residence in Idaho before April 15th each year. The reductions are based on your previous year’s income, less any out-of-pocket medical expenses and your net income can be no more than $31,900. (For 2021 applicants) You must also qualify as one of the following: 65 or older, widowed, disabled, blind, previous POW, or be 18 years old or younger and be a fatherless or motherless child.

Application must be submitted to the County Assessor’s Office or the Idaho State Tax Commission no later than April 15th of the qualifying year. This is an annual application.

For more information or to request a current year application form, please contact the Assessor’s Office at 208-745-9215 or email assessor@co.jefferson.id.us

Idaho Property Tax Deferral

In contrast, the Idaho Property Tax Deferral program offers homeowners a way to postpone paying the taxes on their primary Idaho residence and on up to one acre of land. The deferred taxes and interest must eventually be repaid to the state.

For the tax deferral program, applicants can have no more than $45,756 in 2019 income. Other than income, applicants must meet the requirements of the property tax reduction program listed above.

Homeowners can get applications for both programs from their county assessor. They must file a separate application with the assessor for each program by the April 15 deadline.

For more information, homeowners should call their county assessor’s office or the Idaho Tax Commission toll free at (800) 334-7756. Or, visit:  https://tax.idaho.gov/pubs/EBR00067_11-02-2020.pdf
