63-1404.  Compliance of public officers with rules and orders of state tax commission. (1) Every public officer shall comply with any lawful order or rule of the state tax commission made pursuant to the provisions of this title.
(2)  Every county officer or employee performing related functions shall provide information regarding property rolls and related documents and procedures and parcel numbers to the state tax commission as provided in section 63-219, Idaho Code, may use the computer software prescribed and furnished by the state tax commission, and shall record and transmit information required by the state tax commission in the performance of its duties.
(3)  Whenever it appears to the state tax commission that any public officer or employee whose duties relate to the assessment or equalization of assessments of property for taxation has failed to comply with any law relating to such duties, or the rules of the state tax commission made in pursuance thereof, the state tax commission, after a hearing on the facts, may request an order directing the public officer or employee to comply with such law or rule. An order of the state tax commission may require a county to conduct a revaluation of some or all of the property within the county as the state tax commission may find necessary to promote uniformity of taxation within the county. When necessary for the implementation of such an order, the state tax commission is empowered to reconvene a county board of equalization for a period not to exceed ninety (90) days beyond the date otherwise prescribed for the adjournment of such board for the sole purpose of permitting the board to hear and determine protests of valuations resulting from such ordered reappraisal provided that such protests are filed on or before the date otherwise prescribed for the adjournment of the board of equalization and that such extension is necessary for the proper completion of the board’s duties. The order may further permit the certification of estimated values by the county to the state tax commission subject to the approval of the tax commission if necessary to permit the board of equalization to properly complete its work and such values, when approved by the tax commission, may be used to set levies if actual values are unavailable on the date prescribed for setting levies.
(4)  If such public officer or employee, for a period of ten (10) days after service on him of the state tax commission’s order, neglects or refuses to comply therewith, the state tax commission may apply to a judge of the district court of the county in which the public officer holds office for an order, returnable within five (5) days thereof, to compel such public officer or employee to comply with the state tax commission’s order, or to show cause why he should not be compelled to do so.
(5)  Any order issued by the judge pursuant thereto shall be final; provided however, that any person aggrieved by such order may appeal to the supreme court of the state of Idaho in the manner provided for appeals in other civil actions. An appeal shall not stay any order issued by any judge.
(6)  The remedy provided in this section shall be cumulative and shall not exclude the state tax commission from exercising any other power or right delegated to it.
