REVENUE AND TAXATION
DEFINITIONS — GENERAL PROVISIONS
63-220. Tax extensions as disaster relief. (1) The board of county commissioners of any Idaho county declared by the governor of the state of Idaho as a natural disaster area may grant an extension of time for any filings or payments required under section 63-302(1), 63-602G, 63-706 or 63-903, Idaho Code, to those persons whose ability to timely comply with their filing or payment requirement is adversely affected by a natural disaster set forth in the declaration.
(2) Before granting any extension the board of county commissioners shall provide a procedure for affected taxpayers to justify the extension and provide such other information as the board may require to support the taxpayer’s application.
(3) No extension granted under this section shall be for a period in excess of sixty (60) days.
(4) In all cases where the board has granted an extension under this section, payment of the tax shall not be subject to any late filing penalty or interest if payment of the tax is made on or before the extended due date. Failure to make payments on or before the extended due date will thereafter cause the imposition of penalty and interest.
(5) When, as a result of relief granted under this section, a county official or state agency is unable to comply with a provision in this title requiring an action by a specified date, the action may be delayed only for such reasonably necessary time as the state tax commission approves, but not to exceed sixty (60) days.
