TITLE 63
REVENUE AND TAXATION
CHAPTER 8
LEVY AND APPORTIONMENT OF TAXES
63-805.  Annual levies. (1) The county commissioners of each county in this state may levy annually upon all taxable property of said county, a property tax for general county purposes, including the provision of public defender services, to be collected and paid into the county treasury and apportioned to the county current expense fund which levy shall not exceed twenty-six hundredths percent (.26%) of market value for assessment purposes of such property, or a levy sufficient to raise two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($250,000), whichever is greater. If a county establishes the justice fund, as provided in section 31-4602, Idaho Code, the maximum current expense levy shall be reduced to twenty hundredths percent (.20%) of market value for assessment purposes, or a levy sufficient to raise two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($250,000), whichever is greater.
(2)  The county commissioners of each county in this state may levy upon all taxable property of said county, a property tax for the purposes set forth in the statutes authorizing a county justice fund, to be collected and paid into the county treasury and apportioned to the county justice fund, if one has been established. Said levy shall not exceed twenty hundredths percent (.20%) of market value for assessment purposes of such property, or a levy sufficient to raise two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($250,000), whichever is greater.
The county commissioners shall have the right to make a "general reserve appropriation," said appropriation not to exceed five percent (5%) of the county justice fund budget as finally adopted. The total levy, however, for the county justice fund, including the "general reserve appropriation," shall be within the limitations imposed by chapter 8, title 63, Idaho Code, or by any statutes of the state of Idaho in force and effect.
(3)  Annually, before the second Monday in September, the board of trustees of any school district within the county having determined the number, if any, of pupils in average daily attendance above the number included in the last annual report thereof, and the amount of money required to provide the educational support programs and transportation support programs for such additional pupils in average daily attendance, as defined in chapter 10, title 33, Idaho Code, the county commissioners shall determine the total of such new requirements within the county and upon the taxable property situate within the district requesting the same, and the county commissioners shall levy a tax sufficient to provide such amount, provided in no case shall the levy be more than six-hundredths percent (.06%) of the taxable value of the property to be collected and paid to the requesting district.
(4)  (a) The county commissioners of each county in this state may levy annually upon all taxable property of its county, a property tax for the acquisition, maintenance and operation of public parks or public recreational facilities, to be collected and paid into the county treasury and apportioned to a fund to be designated as the "parks and recreation fund," which is hereby created, and such county commissioners may appropriate otherwise unappropriated funds for such purposes. No levy made under this subsection shall exceed one-hundredth percent (.01%) of the market value for assessment purposes on all taxable property within the district.
(b)  Any funds unexpended from the "parks and recreation fund," or any funds unexpended from the current year’s certified parks and recreation budget may be retained in, or deposited to, the "parks and recreation fund" for the purpose of future land acquisition, park expansion or improvement, or the acquisition of operating equipment. The maximum accumulation of funds allowable shall not exceed twice the amount of money provided by the levy authorized in paragraph (a) of this subsection.
(5)  Upon the same property and for the same year the county commissioners must also levy such other property taxes as may be necessary for the payment of the interest on county bonds or to provide a sinking fund for the redemption of county bonds or such other authorized taxes as may be necessary for any other or special purposes, to be collected and paid into the county treasury and apportioned as provided by the laws of this state.
