Taxpayer is responsible to ensure taxes are paid:
  • FAILURE TO RECEIVE A TAX BILL DOES NOT EXCUSE THE PROPERTY OWNER FROM BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TAXES ON THEIR PROPERTY, INCLUDING ASSESSED LATE FEES, INTEREST AND OTHER COSTS.  (Idaho code 63-902(9)
Taxpayer is responsible for record keeping:
  • Proof of payment is the responsibility of the taxpayer  (Idaho Code 63-1306(2).  The taxpayer is responsible for keeping accurate records of tax payments.
Taxpayers are encouraged to pay their taxes early:  
  • To avoid late fees and interest, pay before the deadlines.  Pre-payment and payment plans are welcome.
When mailing your tax payment:
  • Include your payment stub from your tax bill, to help us process your payment efficiently.
  • Be sure the envelope is USPO postmarked before or on the due date.  A post office cancellation is considered the filing date. A postage meter is not an acceptable post office cancellation mark. (Idaho Code 63-217).
  • If mailing, close to the payment due date, we strongly suggest that you go to the counter at your local Post Office and ask that the envelope be postmarked that day. 

Notify the Assessor’s Office whenever your mailing address changes.

Notify the Assessor’s Office before you transfer, sell or move a manufactured home.
