How can I find the assessed value for my property?
The county mails out annual tax notices that list the assessed value of your property. If the property is your primary residence, you are generally granted a home owner's exemption for 50% of the value up to $100,000. So a $100K home would have an assessed tax value of $50K, a $300K home would have an assessed value of $200k.
Bond Levy Equalization Program
The State of Idaho has a Bond Levy Equalization Program (BLEP) that is funded from Lottery ticket sales and is used to help School Districts repay construction bonds. Cassia Jt. School District would be expected to receive $12.9M in BLEP payments over the 20 year repayment period. That means the BLEP would cover 44% of this Bond's interest costs. Lotto sales, not local property tax payers will cover a significant portion of the interest.
