To calculate your potential property tax deductions in Idaho, follow these steps:

  1. Obtain your property assessment notice or current property tax bill.
  2. Determine your Idaho State income tax bracket. Idaho has a progressive income tax system with rates ranging from 1.125% to 6.925% in 2021.
  3. Identify the property tax deduction amount for your specific bracket. Idaho offers a deduction on state income taxes for property taxes paid on your primary residence, which varies depending on your income level.
  4. Calculate your potential property tax deduction by multiplying the assessed value of your property by the property tax rate in your area. The assessed value is usually a percentage of the market value, and the tax rate is expressed as a decimal. For example, if your property is assessed at $200,000, and the tax rate is 1.5%, your property taxes would be $3,000.
  5. Multiply the property tax deduction amount from step 3 by the property tax paid in step 4. This will give you the estimated deduction you can claim on your Idaho State income taxes.
  6. Finally, consult with a tax professional or use tax software to ensure accuracy and to consider any specific circumstances that may affect your tax deductions in Idaho. They can provide personalized advice and help you maximize your deductions.
