The fact Northern Sunrise County is mailing tax notices that cost less than the price of a stamp will no longer occur.
Council decided at its Aug. 24 meeting to implement a $50 minimum tax charge on all properties beginning in 2022.
Administration suggested a $25 charge because “everyone who owns property should contribute a minimum amount as they receive services” and that all were “tiny little properties”.
Administration also added, “We do see the ones [tax notices] that go out for $2” and about 30 parcels cost less than the price of stamp and envelope.
Council was quick to unanimously agree except for the $25 suggested fee.
“I’m not nearly as nice as you,” said Nampa Rural District Councillor Audrey Gall.
“I find it appalling we’re sending out notices for less than the price of a stamp.”
