Search Demographics:

Idaho utilizes a Tax Deed system to collect delinquent property taxes. If the property taxes have not been paid by the property owners for a period of three years the County Tax Collector will create a tax deed, which the Board of County Commissioners will then sell at public auction.

Auction Process / Redemption:

Idaho uses a 'Premium Bid' 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. The minimum bid usually consists of all delinquent taxes, penalties, interests, pending issue fees, recording fees, and publication costs for notice of the sale, however the County Commissioners may determine otherwise.
