On March 31, 2022, Idaho House Bill 715 was signed into legislation. This bill extends the statute of limitations to claim a credit for certain taxes paid to 10 years, to allow for an offset of taxes imposed under the longer statute for underpaid taxes.
There is currently a three-year statute of limitations to make a claim for a credit or refund of certain overpaid taxes. This statute differs from the 10-year window that the state is allowed to impose tax, penalties, and interest on taxpayers. This legislation amends Idaho Code Section 63-3072 to extend the statute of limitations relating to claims for credit of overpaid taxes, allowing the overpayments to be offset against taxes due.
A claim for refund of tax, penalty, and interest paid must still be filed within the later of three years of the due date of the return, without regard to extensions, or three years from the date the return was filed. However, a claim for credit of tax, penalty, or interest paid may be allowed within the later of 10 years of the due date of the return, without regard to extensions, or 10 years from the date the return was filed. The terms of this legislation will be applied retroactively to January 1, 2022.
