    Hey Idaho Broker I have a couple questions for you if you don't mind?

    I am planning on retiring from my job in Texas and moving to Boise around May-June of 2017. I plan to sell my house in Texas after I move to Idaho and I will be getting a big "lump sum" type of payment from my employer after I retire.
    1- If I get a big check from my employer in Texas for work in Texas after I move to Idaho (like 1-2 months later) is that money taxable for Idaho State Income Tax? I would like to move to Idaho right after I retire but the payment will be delayed for 1-2 months due to accrued vacation time etc..
    2- If I move to Idaho and then sell my house in Texas and have ~$60,000 in Capital Gains is that gain taxable for Idaho State Income Taxes? I would prefer to move to Idaho and then sell my house in Texas but I don't want to suffer any tax penalty.

    Thanks for any advice you can give me, Steve S.

For example, my personal residence is only subject to 7 of the potential levy items:

I just pulled the annual sales for residential real estate sold in Ada County from the Intermountain MLS website. I have broken the sales down by our MLS area number and average price so you can see what to expect for pricing in each of our cities. Keep in mind that different parts of each city can range drastically in price so only use these numbers as a benchmark.

Total residential homes sold in Ada County - $10,349.

It is a challenge for most consumers to get good data about Idaho real estate since we are a non-disclosure state. That means you can't just go log into a website and see what a property sold for. Hence most online automated value models (AVM's) are useless in Idaho.

I just pulled up data for residential homes listed between 1/1/15 and 12/31/15 and here is my summary findings according to the Intermountain Multiple Listing Service (IMLS) data.
  • There were 14,239 residential
