What are MY responsibilities as a property owner and taxpayer?
•Be aware of the important dates, deadlines, and applications for property tax relief and assessment appeals.

•It is particularly important that you be aware of your property tax due dates. Tax bills are mailed for each parcel. However, failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse the taxpayer from paying the taxes, late charges and interest accrued, if any. See Idaho code 63-902(9).

•When mailing your tax payment, be sure the envelope receives a United States Post Office postmark on or before the due date. A post office cancelation is considered the filing date. A postage meter is not an acceptable post office cancelation mark. See Idaho code 63-217

•If you will be traveling out of the area when taxes are due, contact our office for an “estimated tax amount” so you can prepay or make other arrangements to pay your taxes on time.

•Proof of payment for property taxes is the responsibility of the taxpayer. See Idaho code 63-1306(2). Be sure to keep accurate records, receipts and canceled checks documenting your payment.

•Be sure to notify the Assessor’s Office whenever a parcel’s mailing address changes.

•Be sure to notify the Assessor’s Office if you sell or move a manufactured home.

•Be sure to notify the Assessor’s Office if you transfer, sell, or liquidate any personal property.
