Idaho House Local Government Committee Prints Home Owner Exemption Bill

Representative Lynn Luker (R) presented a bill to protect home owners from loosing their homestead tax exemption while they serve in the military or are temporarily away from home providing humanitarian or religious service. The committee voted unanimously to print the bill, which will be set for a public hearing at a later date. One of Representative Luker’s constituents lost his exemption while away temporarily serving in the Peace Corps. Reports from other home owners with like experiences have surfaced. Last year a similar bill sponsored by Rep. Luker passed the House but stalled in the Senate.
