Some Disabled Idaho Veterans May Qualify for Property Tax Reduction | Idaho

BOISE — Some disabled Idaho veterans can get up to $1,500 off their property tax bill on their Idaho residence and up to one acre of land.

Veterans may be eligible for a property tax benefit in 2022 if both conditions apply:

  • They are recognized as a 100% service-related disabled veteran or receive 100% compensation from the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) due to individual unemployability.
  • They own and live in a home in Idaho that is their primary residence as of April 14, 2022.
    • The property must have a current exemption from the owner.
    • The house may be a mobile home.

There is no income limit, but veterans must apply for the benefit each year. The benefit does not renew automatically.

Veterans can apply for the benefit through the Idaho State Tax Commission website at tax.idaho.gov or from their county assessor. Applicants must include a current letter from the VA confirming their 100% service-related disability rating or 100% compensation due to individual unemployability as of January 1, 2022. The County Assessor must receive the application before April 18, 2022.

Disabled veterans may also be eligible for greater property tax relief based on their income. Read the property tax reduction brochure on the Tax Commission website to find out more.
