You might think it’s just a one-time thing, surely no tax would be due, but the Idaho Tax Commission reminded taxpayers about the importance of tax permits after seeing online ads and roadside signs offering Idaho eclipse visitors rooms and homes to rent for lodging and camping. Residents who rent out their properties for these activities are required to collect sales and lodging taxes from guests. In addition, people making money selling souvenirs, food and other items need to collect sales tax. Hopefully, Idaho residents who capitalized on the increased traffic of eclipse watchers earlier today, properly registered with and received a tax permit from the State of Idaho. Learn more here.
