Providing Tax Oversight for Idaho
In the recent November Bonner County levy, the Lake Pend Orielle School District (LPOSD) violated the Idaho law requiring the ballot language to include the specific amount taxpayers will be required to pay. Omitted was the fact that the levy increases property taxes by $214 per every $100,000 of your property’s assessed value. This language is critical to allow taxpayers to make informed decisions.
It is reasonable to ask if this violation is more than a simple oversight. Was this language intentionally left out to mislead voters? Are our elected officials acting with accountability to their constituents? If not, what can you do about it?
Idaho Tax Watch Inc is a nonprofit born out of a response to help Idaho citizens who were financially impacted by the recent misleading Bonner County election. Idaho Tax Watch was created to make sure that our local government is acting transparently, with accountability to its constituents, and follows Idaho statutes. The Idaho Tax Watch nonprofit is dedicated to resolving constituent concerns by providing support and funding for necessary legal challenges.

What We Do Makes a Difference
Oversee Tax Process
Monitoring the tax process in Idaho can be daunting. Our citizens are hard working and dedicated to their families. As individuals we have little power to implement fair change within our government. Idaho Tax Watch provides oversight to keep our elected officials in line.
Fund Legal Actions
Sometimes the only way to get the government to comply with the laws we put in place is through lawsuits. This can be traumatic and very expensive for any individual. Idaho Tax Watch provides financial support in protecting Idahoans from what can be overwhelming tax law.
One of the very best ways to be sure Idahoans are not abused by tax law is to make sure they know exactly what they are voting for. Idaho Tax Watch is dedicated to providing voters with information with the use of internet, fliers, and even visiting voters directly, if necessary.
We’re always looking for the community’s support to help push our campaigns further. Volunteers can contribute as much time as they like on their own schedule. Does that sound like you? Volunteer today and be a part of real and positive change.
