Misc

Idaho also has state tax requirements for Travel and Hotel use, oil and gas produced in the state, a mine license tax, illegal drug stamp act, utilities, but does not have special taxation for cars and transportation.  

Idaho property taxes are collected by the local county tax assessors while the state collects all income and sales taxes.  All residents, individuals, married couples, and head of households are required to file.  Partnerships are not taxed separately. 

Idaho tax forms increase more and more as the big 3 of taxes within the state grow in specificity. These categories of taxes include that of sale, income, and property. Within this article we will focus on the first of those three, that of Idaho sales tax as it represents a branch of society that affects each person of every age bracket.

In general, Idaho sales tax is imposed upon "tangible property" as well as certain services. In contrast to other states, however, there is no Idaho sales tax imposed upon prescription drugs, which provides a lessening of the already rising burdens attached to the medication of our aging populations, especially. Idaho sales tax, for the most part, is that of 6%. However, distinctions exist in terms of certain differing local taxes as well as the fact that utilities and motor fuels possess their own separate taxes. There are also separate cigarette and tobacco taxes. 

The cigarette tax for Idaho is at a rate of 57 cents per basic pack. Since purchases over the internet or phone usually render the absence of tax stamps on cigarette packages, you will want to be aware of the penalties that may be incurred. One such penalty entails that the purchase of quantities of packs exceeding that of 10 will lead to compensation of 3 multiplied by the cigarette tax necessary for each pack. 

At the very least, the penalty would be that of $50. In reference to tobacco, the Idaho sales tax rate is that of 40% of its "wholesale" price. This includes all other products including tobacco other than that of cigarettes, which have already been mentioned previously. In addition, tobacco products procured via the internet, telephone such as by way of catalogs, which usually do not impose Idaho sales tax, will require that you repay the state both "use" tax as well as tobacco tax.

As a welcomed contrast to Idaho sales tax requirements, "Idaho Grocery Credit" represents another area of interest when concerning the procuring of items within the state. First of all, you must be aware that you may be eligible for such credit upon failure to meet standards requiring you to file an income tax return. The Idaho Grocery Credit operates in effect of "offsetting" the sales tax rendered on groceries already purchased. If you did not have to file a return, the refund is usually that of $60. 

In addition, you may receive $60 each for your spouse as well as any of your dependents. Being an elderly individual of 65 years of age or older, you will also garner an additional amount of $20 according to the Idaho Grocery Credit act. Application for this credit varies depending on such age specification as well. In order to qualify, you must have been an Idaho resident for at least 12 months of that taxable year. Idaho tax forms vary depending upon your age bracket. Residents below the age of 65 will use form 40 while all others will fill out form 24.
