BEGINNING MARCH 1, 2013 ALL RETURNED CHECKS WILL BE ASSESSED A $20.00 RETURN FEE
Second half reminder notices for the 2012 taxes went out on May 13th, 2013. Payments must be postmarked on or before June 20th, with a US Postal cancellation mark to be considered current.
Payments mailed for the first half taxes must be postmarked on or before December 20th and have a US Postal cancellation mark to be considered current. The grace period for the second half ends on June 20th of the following year. A postage meter is not an acceptable postal cancellation.
If the first half of Personal Property or Manufactured Housing is not paid by December 20th that half becomes delinquent and the ENTIRE TAX BECOMES DUE IN FULL.
Transient Personal Property and Occupancy Tax is due by March 20th.
If the first half is not paid on or before December 20th, that half becomes delinquent and a 2% late charge shall be added. Interest on the delinquent tax and late charge is calculated at the rate of 1% per month beginning January 1st of that year. If the first half tax is paid in part, late charge and interest is calculated on the remaining tax.
Per Idaho code 63-902(9), the fact you do not receive a tax notice on any property does not excuse you from the taxes or late charge and interest for non-payment.
If you have closed a business during the year, purchased property or believe you have not received all your tax notices, please call (208) 454-7354 to inquire.
Any portion of a property tax may be paid at any time, however, to avoid late charge and interest, total payment must be made in full by the due date. Partial payment of any tax will not invalidate any collection process.
