Question
Idaho Credits

Answer

Income Tax Paid to Other States
When the same income is taxed by both Idaho and another state, you may become entitled to a credit for tax paid to the other state. Use Form 39R to compute the credit. You must attach a copy of the other state's income tax return and Form 39R. If credit applies to more than one state, use a separate Form 39R for each state.

You may be entitled to a credit for tax paid to another state by a pass-through entitiy. If a pass-through entitity paid a tax to another state, it should report that information to you.

Examples of income that may be taxed by both Idaho and another state include:

  • Wages earned in another state that has an income tax, such as Oregon or Utah, while living in Idaho.
  • Income from a business or profession earned in another state that has an income tax, while a resident of Idaho.

Credit For Contributions To Idaho Educational Entities
If you donated cash or goods to qualified educational entities, you may claim a tax credit.

If you claimed or earned the credit for qualifying new employees, enter the amount computed on Line 5, Part III, Form 55. Otherwise, the credit is limited to the smallest of:

  • One-half of the amount donated,
  • 20% of the tax on line 23,
  • $100 ($200 on a joint return), or
  • The tax on line 23 less the amount on line 24.

When determining the amount of credit, you should include amounts from Form ID K-1, Part C, line 1, in your calculations.
