Property Tax Break for Seniors (per Kiplinger):

If you are a qualified Idaho homeowner, you may be eligible for property tax relief. To qualify, you must own and occupy the home as your primary residence, meet income requirements and be either age 65 or older, a widow or widower, blind, a former prisoner of war, a fatherless or motherless minor, or a qualifying disabled person. This program may reduce property taxes on your home and up to one acre of land by as much as $1,320.\n\nIdaho also has a property-tax deferral program that allows eligible applicants to temporarily defer property taxes on their home and up to one acre of land. Residents must live in a primary-residence home or mobile home and have lived there since before April 15, 2015. They must meet one of seven requirements, two of which are being 65 or older or being a widow or widower. They also must have an income of $42,776 or less. Despite the deferral, taxes and interest must eventually be repaid to the state.\n
