Auditorium Districts

Some Idaho areas have established auditorium districts and have a local sales tax in addition to the state sales tax. They’re sometimes referred to as local “option” taxes because the taxes are decided by the voters in the community affected.

Auditorium districts are restricted to charging a local sales tax only for lodging.

The Idaho State Tax Commission administers these taxes.
