Idaho State Sales Tax – A Quick Guide For Businesses

State Spotlight Series ID

Idaho state horizon and field

Idaho state sales tax rate is 6%. However, like many other states, there are several city and local jurisdictions that could have their own tax rates added on.

Economic Nexus?

No. Technically Idaho doesn’t have economic nexus, so sales alone won’t trigger sales tax obligations in the state. However, their click-through nexus laws are worth noting because of the lower than average threshold. Instead of $100,000 or even $250,000, the Idaho requirement is a comparatively low 10,000.

Though, the requirements aren’t as bad as they first seem. In addition to the amount requirement, there is a connection requirement. A business has to be connected to an Idaho-based seller. This could be anything as simple as a link to your store on the Idaho seller’s website, or something more obvious, such as them installing materials on your behalf.

The law came into effect July 1, 2018.
