Idaho State Tax Rate

Choosing Idaho as an RV Domicile State

The Idaho state tax rate is an important consideration when choosing which state you want as your RV domicile. Other deciding factors for families who RV travel with kids might include Idaho homeschool regulations, and Idaho drivers license and Idaho auto insurance requirements.

The nice thing about having no ties to any state is the ability to choose your RV domicile, or RV home base. You can find a state that offers the best set of options for you and your family, depending on your individual needs. Of course, not every full time RV family has the ability or option of choosing their domicile. See the following page to determine if your domicile has been chosen for you:
