The Treasurer's office will be closed on May 24th for team training. Our payment dropbox, located outside our door, will be available for payment drop-offs.

Why did I just get a property tax bill?

On March 28, 2023, the Treasurer's office mailed tax bills for the amount due as a result of you recently occupying your home and/or for value that was added after the annual personal and real property rolls closed. You may have received two bills. In most cases, this is because, in addition to you, occupying your new home, the developers credit was also removed from the land.

The first half of this payment is due April 28th; second half will be due on June 20th. We recommend you contact your mortgage company to inform them of this additional amount due. Payments received after April 28th will be subject to late charges and interest that will be applied retroactively to January 1, 2023.

For questions about your tax bill, please contact us at 208-446-1005.

If you have questions regarding the reason for the increase in property value, you can reach the Assessor's office at 208-446-1500.
