Homeowner’s Exemption

What is it?

The homeowner’s exemption will exempt 50% of the value of your home and up to one acre of land (maximum: $125,000) from property tax.

Read more about Homeowner’s Exemption in Idaho Code 63-602G

Do I qualify?

To qualify, you must own and occupy your home as your primary residence before Dec. 31 and you must file an application with our office by Dec. 31 for the current tax year. There are no income or age qualifications, and homeowners can only exempt one home.

How do I apply?

To apply, submit a completed application by Dec. 31 to the Bannock County Assessor’s Office, 130 North 6th Avenue, Pocatello.

Request an application:

Phone: 208-236-7260
Office: 130 North 6th Avenue, Pocatello ID 83201

Do I need to apply again?

You only need to apply once. If approved, your exemption is good until any of the following happens:

• You move and the home is no longer your primary residence
• You no longer own the home
• The home’s ownership changes (e.g., you put the home in a trust; you start to share ownership with someone else)

How will I know I’ve been approved for an exemption?

When the application is approved, the exemption is permanent as long as one owns and occupies the property. If the property is sold, the new owner must file an application with the assessor’s office.

Notices of approval are not sent to homeowners; to verify that your exemption has been processed please review your annual assessment notice. If you believe there is an error pertaining to your exemption contact our office at (208) 236-7260.

Veterans Property Tax Reduction

The Veterans Property Tax Reduction benefit reduces property taxes for qualified 100% service-connected disabled veterans.

If you qualify, the property taxes on your home and up to one acre of land may be reduced by as much as $1,500. The program doesn’t have an income limit.

Once granted, a surviving spouse can use this benefit, but it isn’t transferable to a new property after the death of the qualifying veteran.

Note: The benefits won’t reduce solid waste, irrigation, or other fees charged by government entities.

Who qualifies

You may qualify for Veterans Property Tax Reduction in 2022 if both of these apply:

  • You are recognized as a 100% service-connected disabled veteran or receive 100% compensation due to individual unemployability by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as of January 1, 2022.
  • You owned and lived in a home in Idaho that was your primary residence before April 15, 2022.
    • The property must have a current homeowner’s exemption.
    • The home can be a mobile home.

Note: You could qualify if you lived in a care facility or nursing home. Contact your county assessor’s office for information.

How to apply

  1. Contact your county assessor for an application or download one here.
  2. Get a current letter from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs confirming your 100% service-connected disability rating or your 100% compensation due to individual unemployability as of January 1, 2022.
  3. Complete the application. The assessor’s office will help you. You must file the application with your assessor’s office between January 1 and April 18, 2022.

Note:

  • This benefit isn’t automatically renewed. You must apply and qualify each year.
  • If approved, your benefit will appear on your December 2022 property tax bill.

Property Tax Deferral

If you’re an Idaho homeowner, you might be eligible for the Idaho Property Tax Deferral (PTD) program. The program lets you postpone paying taxes on your home and up to one acre of land.

  • You must meet certain conditions of the property tax reduction (PTR) program.
  • For the 2022 program, your income for 2021 can’t be more than $50,650.
  • You must pay the taxes and interest at a later time.
