Idaho to Exempt Prescription Eyeglasses in 2015 and Contact Lenses in 2016

Mar 27th, 2015

Idaho has enacted a law that will exempt sales of prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses.

Effective July 1, 2015, purchases of prescription eyeglasses are exempt from tax when they are (1) administered or distributed by a licensed practitioner or (2) purchased by or on behalf of an individual under a prescription or work order of a practitioner. The same exemption will be available for contact lenses; however, this exemption will not take effect until July 1, 2016.
