Refunds

You must file a return within three years of its original due date (often April 15), or any refund you’re owed for that return will expire. You should still file your tax return if it’s past the three-year limit, but we won’t be able to issue any refund.

Amended returns

Double-check your tax return before you mail it or submit it through an online e-filing service. (Note: An amended return can delay completion of other returns we’re processing.)

You can correct a return you’ve already filed by filing an amended return. Follow these steps:

  1. Check which return you originally filed – Form 40 or Form 43. Download a blank copy.
  2. Check the AMENDED box at the top of the blank return.
  3. Complete the return as it should have been filled out.
  4. Attach an explanation of why you’re amending the return.
  5. If you need to, include copies of forms or schedules missing from the original filing.
  6. If your federal return was amended, attach a copy of Form 1040X.
  7. Mail your amended return, any supporting documentation and any payment due to:
    Idaho State Tax Commission, PO Box 56, Boise ID 83756-0056.
 

Requirement to file

You’re required to file if your gross income is above a certain amount (see below). Gross income means all income from all sources before applying expenses or deductions. This income includes wages, interest, rents, dividends, gains from property sales, and gross business income.
