Idaho Property Tax Relief, HB 1 (2006)
The State of Idaho adopted a property tax relief plan in August 2006 that reduced property taxes by about $260 million and kept the state's sales tax at 6%. The advisory question asked voters in the state on an advisory basis whether they wished to continue that plan.
|Idaho Advisory Vote|
The question on the ballot was:
| [Note that this is an advisory vote only; it is not binding if it passes.]
"Should the State of Idaho keep the property tax relief adopted in August 2006, reducing property taxes by approximately $260 million and protecting funding for public schools by keeping the sales tax at 6%?"
Although there was no opposition campaign, there was a campaign in support of the Property Tax Relief Advisory Vote. The "yes" campaign was organized under the name, "Committee for Fairness in Idaho Tax Policy PAC". It raised $34,000 for its campaign.
