Have you filed for your 2010 Idaho Homeowners Exemption?   If you've bought a home in the last year you only have about 2 weeks left... the deadline is April 15!  For 2010, if an Idaho property is your primary residence your taxable value can be reduced by $101,153 or up to 50% of the assessed value (for the home & up to 1 acre of land).

If you already receive this exemption, you do not need to reapply annually. The exemption stays on the property as long as you own and continue to occupy the property.  You can read more about Idaho Property Taxes, the Idaho Homeowner Exemption, download the application, or file online.
