The state of Idaho levies a 6% state sales tax on the retail sale, lease or rental of most goods and some services. Several local jurisdictions impose additional sales taxes up to an additional 3%.
Use tax is also collected on the consumption, use or storage of goods in Idaho if sales tax was not paid on the purchase of the goods. The use tax rate is the same as the sales tax rate. Returns are to be filed on or before the 20th day of the month following the month in which the purchases were made. For example, purchases made in the month of January should be reported to the state of Idaho on or before February 20th.
