Tax Permit Needed If You Plan to Rent for Solar Eclipse
If you’re planning to rent your property for the upcoming solar eclipse, you need to collect the Idaho sales and lodging taxes that apply – even if the rental is for one day only, according to the Idaho State Tax Commission.
Something else you might not know: if you’re planning to sell food, souvenirs or other items, you also need to collect and remit sales tax.
“In addition, those selling and renting out may also need to collect a local sales tax charged by some resort cities and auditorium districts,” according to the commission.
