Eligible homeowners can apply online for property tax relief

BOISE, Idaho (KIFI) — You might qualify for some property tax relief. 

Idaho’s Property Tax Reduction program reduces property taxes on an eligible homeowner’s primary Idaho residence and up to one acre of land by as much as $1,500.

You can apply for the program online HERE. You’ll need an email address. You also can get a paper application on the Tax Commission’s website or from your county assessor. Apply online or mail an application to your county assessor by Monday, April 15. Applicants must apply every year.

“Applying online is a convenient option for taxpayers who can’t easily get to their county assessor’s office,” said Pam Waters, administrator of Idaho’s Property Tax Reduction program. “It’s also a great way to apply for other tax relief programs like property tax deferral and the disabled veterans benefit.”

You might qualify for a property tax reduction if all of these are true:

  • You’re an Idaho resident.
  • You own and occupy your home or mobile home, and the value doesn’t exceed a limit set by law that will be calculated in June 2024.
  • Your total 2023 income, after deducting medical expenses, was $37,000 or less.
  • You’re any of the following as of January 1, 2024:
    • 65 or older
    • Former POW or hostage
    • Motherless or fatherless child under 18
    • Blind
    • Widow(er)
    • Disabled

Property tax reduction benefits won’t reduce special fees that government entities charge.
