Property Tax Relief
This exemption is available to homeowners who owned and occupied a home by April 14th and this home is their primary dwelling place. This exempts 50% or $100,000 (for 2017) whichever is less, of a homestead assessed value. Property taxes are computed on the remaining value.
For more information or to apply, contact the Minidoka County Assessor.
Property taxes may be cancelled for reason of undue hardship. Applicants must apply to the County Commissioners.
Casualty Loss Exemption
If personal or real property has been damaged by an event causing casualty loss to all or a portion of the property, the Board of Equalization may on a case-by-case basis determine whether to grant an exemption. The application must be filed on or before the end of the county's normal business hours on the fourth Monday of June of the year in which the casualty loss occurred.
The Commissioners may, at their discretion, cancel taxes on property which has been damaged by an event causing casualty loss to all or a portion of the property when the event occurs after the fourth Monday of June or casualty losses for which the amount of loss cannot be determined until after the fourth Monday of June. Applicants seeking a cancellation pursuant to this section must apply to the County Commissioners.
