Not All Idaho Companies Back Property Tax Repeal

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Not all companies — or even all Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry members — back personal property tax repeal. Monsanto Co., which mines and processes phosphate in southeastern Idaho, worries dumping the tax could leave its home county short of money to pay for essential services.

Avista Corp., the utility that serves 120,000 electric customers in northern Idaho, has also said it’s not pushing for changes. Avista, which is no longer a member of IACI, in a newspaper editorial earlier this year wrote it “does not support the elimination of property taxes at the detriment of communities in Idaho.”

Its stance does leave room for the Spokane, Wash.-based utility to change its mind — if lawmakers come up with a proposal that Avista concludes doesn’t hurt local governments.
