A personal representative can be an executor, administrator or anyone who’s in charge of the deceased taxpayer’s property. Conformity to Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Idaho conforms to the IRC as of January 1, 2020. Idaho doesn’t conform to bonus depreciation for assets acquired after 2009.

Taxpayers can deduct up to $15,000 ($30,000 if married filing a joint return). See Forms 39R and 39NR for details.

EIN00046 12-21-2020 2020 (continued) Extension of Time to File This isn’t an extension of time to pay your taxes—it’s an extension to file your return. You automatically get an extension of up to six months to file your return if you’ve paid at least: • 100% of what you paid for state income taxes the year before or • 80% of your current year’s tax liability You can avoid a penalty for late filing, but will be charged interest on the remaining tax until it’s paid.

If you qualify for an extension to file your Idaho return, send the return and pay in full by October 15, 2021. Penalties Idaho law provides penalties for not filing tax returns by the due date, not paying tax due on time, and not prepaying enough on extension returns. For more information or to calculate a penalty, see our Penalties and Interest page at tax.idaho.gov/penalties. Interest We charge interest on the amount of tax due from the original due date of the return until paid at the rate of 2% per year (rate effective for 2021).

Note: The above exception to being an Idaho resident doesn’t apply to a qualified servicemember. Community Property Idaho is a community property state. Idaho’s community property laws generally treat property and income acquired during marriage differently than other property. For more information, visit tax.idaho.gov/commprop. Military Personnel Idaho law generally follows federal law regarding which type of military pay (active duty, disability, reserve or retirement) is taxable. Qualified Servicemember A qualified servicemember is: • Any member of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, or Space Force on active duty • A member of the National Guard called to active duty service by the President of the United States or the U.S. Secretary of Defense EIN00046 12-21-2020 Federal Military Spouses Residency Relief Act The earned income of qualifying spouses of Idaho servicemembers isn’t subject to Idaho income tax because of the federal Military Spouses Residency Relief Act. As a servicemember’s spouse, you qualify for this exemption if: • You’re married to a servicemember who’s serving in Idaho and the servicemember registered their home of record in another state and • You’ve moved to Idaho with the servicemember and have the same domicile (permanent residence) as the servicemember’s home of record If you qualified for the Idaho income tax military spouse exemption, report any Idaho withholding on Form 43, line 66.

A qualified servicemember isn’t a resident of, or domiciled in, Idaho just by being stationed in Idaho. Nonresidents on Active Duty Stationed in Idaho Idaho doesn’t tax your military income if your military home of record isn’t Idaho and you’re on active duty stationed in Idaho for all or part of the year. Idaho taxes nonmilitary income from Idaho sources. File Form 43 if your gross income from Idaho sources is more than $2500. The instructions for Form 43 begin on page 15. National Guard Members Called to Active Duty in a Combat Zone Idaho follows federal law and provides income tax relief for servicemembers on active duty in combat zones. Below is a summary of how these laws affect Idaho National Guard members: • All tax filing deadlines are extended for at least 180 days after your last day in a combat zone • No interest or penalty accrues for nonpayment of individual income taxes while you’re in a combat zone • If you’re enlisted or a warrant officer, you don’t owe tax on military pay received while in a combat zone. If you’re a commissioned officer, the monthly exclusion is capped at the highest enlisted pay plus any hostile fire or imminent danger pay received • Federal law doesn’t cover business tax returns, employment taxes or sales/use tax obligations • Write “COMBAT ZONE” and the date of deployment on top of the tax return you’re filing 2020 (continued) • The income is included on the tax return If you have no other income, you aren’t required to file. If you have other income in an amount that meets the federal filing requirement, you must file an Idaho return. For specific instructions see Form 39R or 39NR. Amended Returns Use Form 40 or 43 to amend your return. Check the amended return box at the top of the form and enter the reason for amending. See Amended Return on page 7 or 15 for more information. If your taxable income or tax credits change because of an audit, you must send written notice including an amended return to the Tax Commission within 120 days of the final determination. Include copies of all federal and/or state schedules. If you owe additional Idaho tax and don’t send written notice within 120 days of the final federal determination, we apply a 5% negligence penalty. We charge interest on any tax due. If the final determination results in an Idaho refund, you must file an amended Idaho income tax return with the written notice. If the statute of limitations is closed, you have one year from the date of the final determination to file for the refund.

If you’ve applied for an ITIN and haven’t received it from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) before you file your Idaho return, enter “Form W-7” in the space provided for the SSN. If you enter “Form W-7,” include a copy of your federal Form W-7 with your return.

Be sure that your return and W-2 forms show the correct SSN or ITIN. An error in your SSN or ITIN will delay your refund. EIN00046 12-21-2020 Complete the entire form and schedules using the corrected amounts. Don’t include a copy of your original return with the amended return.

Line 11 Qualified Business Income Deduction Enter the amount from federal Form 1040 or 1040-SR, line 13. Page 7 of 63 Form 40 — Instructions Line 12 Total Adjusted Income If your total adjusted income is negative, see Form 56 and instructions. Tax Computation Line 13a Age 65 or Older If you’re 65 or older, check the box for “Yourself.” If you’re filing a joint return and your spouse is 65 or older, check the box for “Spouse.” If your 65th birthday was on January 1, 2021, you may consider yourself 65 on December 31, 2020. The boxes you check must match your federal return. Line 13b Blind Check the box for “Yourself” if you’re blind. If you’re filing a joint return and your spouse is blind, check the box for “Spouse.” The boxes you check must match your federal return. Line 13c Claimed Dependent Check this box if someone else, such as a parent, can claim you as a dependent. Lines 14-17 Itemized or Standard Deductions Most people can find their standard deduction by looking at the instructions to the left of Form 40, line 17. Use the Standard Deduction Worksheet beginning on this page to calculate your standard deduction if: • You check any boxes on lines 13a through 13c or • Someone can claim you or your spouse, if filing jointly, as a dependent You can use either your federal itemized deductions or standard deduction, whichever benefits you more. (For exceptions, see You Must Itemize If.) Idaho requires that state or local income or general sales taxes shown on federal Schedule A be subtracted from your total itemized amount before you use this figure to reduce your income. Because of this add back, it may be more beneficial to itemize for federal purposes but use the standard deduction for Idaho. If you use federal Schedule A to itemize, use the following instructions for line 15: • If federal Schedule A, line 5d, is: $10,000 or less ($5,000 if married filing separately), enter the amount from federal Schedule A, line 5a. EIN00046 12-21-2020 2020 (continued) More than $10,000 ($5,000 if married filing separately), subtract lines 5b and 5c from line 5e and enter the amount here. Enter zero for any result less than zero. If the IRS considers you or your spouse a nonresident alien and you aren’t from India, your standard deduction is zero. If you’re nonresident aliens from India, use the standard deduction indicated for your filing status. Federal Foreign Tax Credit If you claim the federal foreign tax credit, Idaho allows that amount as a deduction. Idaho doesn’t have a credit that matches the federal foreign tax credit. Add the amount you claimed for the federal foreign tax credit to your Idaho itemized deductions. If line 16 is more than line 17, use your itemized deductions on line 16. If line 17 is more than line 16, use your standard deduction on line 17. You Must Itemize If: • You’re married, filing a separate return (filing status 3) and your spouse itemizes • You had dual status as a nonresident alien for part of 2020 and during the rest of the year you were a resident alien or a U.S. citizen However, you don’t have to itemize if you file a joint return with your spouse who was a U.S. citizen or resident at the end of 2020, and you and your spouse agree to be taxed on your combined worldwide income.

About the Individual Income Tax
The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.
Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
