Casualty Loss Exemption
Due to a heavy winter this year, there has been an increase in the number of structures that have been destroyed by heavy snow. When your assessment notice comes out it will show the value as of January 1st of that year. Idaho statute allows for a Casualty loss exemption. This will allow the County Commissioners to exempt destroyed property from taxes for that year. The exemption needs to be filed on or before the 4th Monday of June to be applied to the current tax year. You can pick up an application at the Assessor’s Office or there will be a link on our website. You can also email the Assessor at: email@example.com.
