Residents of the Gem State who are eligible for the tax rebate have until Dec. 31 to file their 2020 and 2021 tax returns. In order to qualify for the tax rebate, people must have been full-year residents in Idaho for both 2020 and 2021.
The rebates were approved by the state legislature in September during a special session. The payments will be delivered to residents via either paper checks or direct deposit.
Nearly 800,000 rebates worth approximately $500 million are set to be sent out to residents by the end of March 2023, per the Idaho State Tax Commission. The commission also says the rebates will be used to pay any outstanding tax payments owed to the state by a person before being sent out to the person.
Idahoans can track the status of their rebate via a state website, and they can also find additional information about the rebate by checking with state agencies.
