<< Back to Tax Deed State List
Idaho utilizes a Tax Deed system to collect delinquent property taxes. If the property taxes have not been paid by the property owner for a period of three years, the county tax collector will formulate a Tax Deed. Idaho uses a premium bidding system with the board of county commissioners reserving the right to reject any and all bids. The minimum bid is determined by the county commissioners, but is based on a recommendation given by the county treasurer.
Idaho uses public auctions for the sale of Tax Deeds. The bidding process is a Premium Bid method. Bidding begins at the set starting or minimal bid. The minimum bid is determined by the county commissioners, but is based on a recommendation given by the county treasurer. The minimum bid consists of the delinquent taxes with penalty and interest certification and special assessments, pending issue fees, recording fees, and publication costs for notice of sale. The property is bid up in price until a high bid is established. The highest bidder receives the deed to the property.
