Kootenai County IdahoProperty owners in Kootenai County, Idaho are looking at a reduction in the amount of the exemption they will receive in 2012 on their primary residence of $8,066.

The Idaho Tax Commission has calculated the 2012 maximum exemption at $83,974, down from last year's maximum of $92,040.  The exemption on taxable value applies to 50% of the home's assessed value, and up to one acre of land. 

Under state law, the Tax Commission adjusts the exemption amount each years based on the Idaho Housing Price Index.

The lowering of the maximum exemption will increase net taxable value for homeowners whose property valuations exceed the maximum.

I have a home in Ca., 10 acres in Worley ID, I just put an offer in on a home in Rathdrum ID and found that since this home would not be my primary home that I do not meet the property tax excemption program, the difference goes from $1200.00 per year to $3700.00 a year, how can this be possible that it jumps 3 times the amount that it should be on a home that I would like to buy at $130,000.00.

I am purchaceing this property to move in a few years and in the mean time come up and fix the place up about 3 - 4 months out of the year so that when I do move it is ready for me and my wife.

To qualify for this it is stated on the assessors site these qualification:

  • Vehicle is licensed in Idaho (if you own a vehicle).
  • Registered Idaho voter (if you vote)
  • If you file income tax, at the appropriate time the property owner would file a full year Idaho resident income tax return.
  • You reside in Idaho for a majority of the year
  • If the property is in a trust, bring the entire trust with you for us to review and determine eligibility.
  • A valid Idaho drivers license (if you drive)

Know if I have a ID dirvers licence, Reg. voter in ID, file part of my income taxes in ID from my internet sales and have a living trust, can I be eligable for this exception or is there another way that I would not have to pay such high tax rate.
