Beginning in 2019, Idaho is starting a new program for disabled veterans with a 100% service-connected disability. Those veterans meeting the requirements may apply for a special property tax reduction of $1,320, not to exceed the amount of the veteran’s actual property taxes.

To qualify for the exemption the veteran must meet the following requirements:

  • Have a 100% service-connected disability
  • Living in the home as a primary residence for which the exemption is to be applied.
  • Provide the appropriate paperwork that shows proof the 100% service-connected disability.

Apply from January 1, 2019 – April 15th, 2019.  property-tax-benefit-veterans
