Tax Reduction Programs

What is the HOMEOWNERS EXEMPTION program?

Each owner-occupied primary residence (house or manufactured home) and up to one acre of land is eligible for a homeowner’s exemption. The exemption can reduce taxable value by 50%, up to a maximum of $100,000 for the home and up to one acre of land.

What is the PROPERTY TAX DEFERRAL program?  

The Property Tax Deferral Program offers individuals a way to defer property taxes on their home and up to one acre of land. The taxes and interest must eventually be repaid to the state of Idaho.  View the 2018 Property Tax Deferral Application.

What is the PROPERTY TAX REDUCTION (Circuit Breaker) Program?

If you are a qualified Idaho homeowner, you may be eligible for the 2018 Property Tax Reduction program. This program may reduce property taxes on your home and up to one acre of land by as much as $1,320. The Idaho State Tax Commission administers the Property Tax Reduction program, but you must apply through the county assessor’s office (Chapter 7 of Idaho Code). Guidelines and filing procedures are outlined in the Idaho Property Tax Reduction Brochure


For the 2018 tax year the deadline for applying for Homeowner’s Exemption and Property Tax Reduction is April 17th at 5 p.m. All other exemptions must be submitted by April 15th at 5 p.m. (if the 15th falls on a weekend, the deadline becomes the next immediate business day thereafter).
