Idaho Individual Income Tax Provisions

When it comes to taxing state residents, Idaho uses a joint system which is similar to the federal government's in that it combines the incomes of both spouses (in a married couple) and taxes it as a single amount. This system shows the benefit of taxing families as a single unit.

Additionally, Idaho uses the federal AGI of taxpayer's as a baseline for their state level taxes. However, there are some differences present between what income is taxed by the state and what is exempt in relation to the federal guidelines.

Exemptions

Certain income sources are exempt from state taxation including:

  • Interest from U.S. Government bonds
  • Social Security benefits
  • Public pensions for certain police and firemen subject to a $30,396 exclusion ($45,594 married), reduced by Social Security amount for those over 65 or 62 if disabled.
  • CSRS payments (does not include FERS payments) excluded up to $30,396 exclusion ($45,594 married), reduced by Social Security amount for those over 65 or 62 if disabled.
  • CZE and active duty pay for Idaho residents in the military is exempt

IDeductions

Idaho follows the same standard deduction schedule as the federal government, as well as keeping itemized deductions the same. There are a few deduction differences at the state level as follows:

  • Lottery winnings less than $600 can be deducted
  • State and local income/sales taxes aren't deductible
  • Energy efficient upgrades can be deducted
  • Contributions to an Idaho state college savings plan are eligible for deduction
  • Educator expenses are non-deductible.
