ALL RETURNED CHECKS WILL BE ASSESSED A $20.00 RETURN FEE.
We are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, excluding holidays. We accept cash, checks, money orders and cashier checks. However, we strongly encourage citizens to mail in payments or use our online payment options.
P.O. Box 1010 Caldwell, ID 83606 When you pay by check you authorize us to process your payment electronically. Funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same day we receive your payment. You will not receive your original check back from your financial institution: however an image of the check will be available from your financial institution. Payments mailed for the first half taxes must be postmarked on or before December 20th and have a US Postal cancellation mark to be considered current. The grace period for the second half ends on June 20th of the following year. A postage meter is not an acceptable postal cancellation. If the first half of Personal Property or Manufactured Housing is not paid by December 20th that half becomes delinquent and the ENTIRE TAX BECOMES DUE IN FULL. Transient Personal Property and Occupancy Tax is due by March 20th. If the first half is not paid on or before December 20th, that half becomes delinquent and a 2% late charge shall be added. Interest on the delinquent tax and late charge is calculated at the rate of 1% per month beginning January 1st of that year. If the first half tax is paid in part, late charge and interest is calculated on the remaining tax. Per Idaho code 63-902(9), the fact you do not receive a tax notice on any property does not excuse you from the taxes or late charge and interest for non-payment. If you have closed a business during the year, purchased property or believe you have not received all your tax notices, please call 208-454-7354 to inquire.
Any portion of a property tax may be paid at any time, however, to avoid late charge and interest, total payment must be made in full by the due date. Partial payment of any tax will not invalidate any collection process.

Second half tax due by June 20th – a 2% late charge will be added to the second half if not paid by June 20th. Interest will date back to January 1st at 12% annually.
Late personal and manufactured housing taxes that are not paid on or by the 20th are considered delinquent, and the entire amount of tax must be paid in full; the 2nd installment option is no longer available. When any part of a personal property or manufactured house tax becomes delinquent, a Warrant of Distraint is issued to the Canyon County Sheriff for the collection of taxes. Additional charges will be added.
The taxpayer must notify the Assessor’s Office of any mailing address changes. Your annual tax notice will be mailed no later than the 4th Monday in November. If you do not receive a notice by the end of the month, you should contact our office immediately.
Know the annual tax due dates: December 20th and June 20th. The taxpayer should know if they are responsible to pay the taxes or if their lender intends to pay the annual tax. If you have recently refinanced, review your loan documentation to determine how the taxes were handled at closing. If you are still not clear who should be paying the tax, please contact the title company or your lender.
Important – Per Idaho code 63-902(9) the fact that you do not receive a tax notice on any property does not excuse you from the tax or associated late charge and/or interest for non-payment. If you have closed a business during the year, purchased property, or believe you have not received all your tax notices, please call (208) 454-7354.
