Solar Eclipse: Selling and Renting is Taxable in Idaho

Friday, July 28th, 2017


Idaho recently released a notice about the taxability of selling and renting during the solar eclipse.

The notice points out that sales tax must be collected even if sales and rentals only occur for one day. Idaho's 6% sales tax rate applies to sales of food, t-shirts, souvenirs, and other like items.

Renting out a yard, driveway, parking lot, or other space for overnight camping is subject to the 6% sales tax as well as Idaho's 2% travel and convention tax. These taxes also apply to temporary lodgings such as rentals of homes, vacation homes, cabins, trailers, or rooms in a home. An additional local tax - such as the 5% Greater Boise Auditorium District Tax - may also apply to these rentals.
