Last-minute tax filers in the Boise area can drop off their state income tax returns without getting out of the car at the Idaho State Tax Commission’s annual curbside service on tax day, according to a press release.

Tax commission employees will be outside the Boise office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 18 — the day income taxes are due — with bins to accept Idaho returns and pass out tax forms. The Boise office is at 11321 W. Chinden Blvd. on the state’s Chinden campus. A drop box for Idaho returns is also available in the parking lot, accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Idahoans can visit the customer-service counter inside to make payments and get answers to tax questions.

The tax commission said in the release that another way to get help is to call 208-334-7660 in the Boise area or toll free at 800-972-7660. Office and phone hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, except on Wednesdays when the hours start at 9 a.m.

To find tax forms, make payments and get answers to tax questions, go to the tax commission’s website at tax.idaho.gov. The commission’s website also has links to software providers that offer free e-filing to many Idahoans at tax.idaho.gov/freefile.

The site also has Quick Pay, a free service that lets taxpayers make an online payment without creating a special account. Find it at tax.idaho.gov/quickpay.
