This includes your distributive share from Form ID K-1, Part B, line 4, net of the expenses related to the federal obligations from Form ID K-1, Part B, line 5.
LINE 4 INSULATION OF AN IDAHO RESIDENCE
To qualify for this deduction, your Idaho home must have existed, been under construction, or had a building permit issued on or before January 1, 1976. The insulation must be in addition to any existing insulation and can't be a replacement.
Insulation means any material commonly used in the building industry and installed to retard the passage of heat into or out of a building, such as fiberglass, rock wool, weather stripping, double-pane windows, storm doors and storm windows.
Insulated siding doesn't qualify unless the cost of the siding and the insulating material is separately stated, in which case the cost of the insulating material alone qualifies. The amount charged for labor to install the insulation is also deductible.
LINE 5 ALTERNATIVE ENERGY DEVICE DEDUCTION
If you install an alternative energy device in your Idaho residence, you may deduct a portion of the amount actually paid or accrued (billed but not paid). Qualifying devices include:

- a natural gas or propane heating unit that replaces a noncertified wood stove
- an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified wood stove or pellet stove meeting the most current industry and state standards that replaces a noncertified wood stove
A noncertified wood stove is a wood stove that doesn't meet the most current EPA standards. The noncertified wood stove must be taken to a site authorized by the Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ) within 30 days from the date of purchase of the qualifying device.
The natural gas or propane heating unit, the EPA-certified wood stove, or pellet stove must be installed the same tax year that the nonqualifying wood stove is turned in to the DEQ.
In the year the device is placed in service, you can deduct 40% of the cost to construct, reconstruct, remodel, install or acquire the device, but not more than $5,000.
In the next three years after installation, you can deduct 20% of these costs per year, but not more than $5,000 in any year.

Disability pension paid by the Federal Railroad Retirement Act may be included on line 7 of Form 1040 as wages, if you are under the minimum retirement age.
LINE 8 RETIREMENT BENEFITS DEDUCTION FOR QUALIFIED RETIREMENT BENEFITS
If you are age 65 or older, or if you are disabled and age 62 or older, you may be able to deduct some of the retirement benefits and annuities you receive. You can't claim this deduction if you file married filing separate.
Only the following are qualified retirement benefits:
- Civil Service Employees: Retirement annuities paid by the United States of America Civil Service Retirement System to a retired civil service employee or the unremarried widow of the employee if the recipient is age 65 or older, or disabled and age 62 or older. To qualify for the deduction, the employee must have established eligibility before 1984. Retirement annuities paid to a retired federal employee under the Federal Employees Retirement System don't qualify for the deduction.

Complete Idaho Form CG to compute your capital gains deduction.
LINE 11 MILITARY PAY EARNED OUTSIDE OF IDAHO
If you are serving in the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard on active military duty that is continuous and uninterrupted for 120 days, your active duty military wages for service outside of Idaho aren't subject to Idaho tax. The continuous 120 days don't have to be in the same tax year. Enter your nontaxable military wages.
Do not include military wages earned while stationed in Idaho. Your wage and tax statement (W-2) doesn't show this amount separately and you may have to compute the amount of income earned outside of Idaho. You should see your unit of assignment or use your orders in making the computation. Attach a copy of your worksheet.
National Guard or Reserve pay, including annual training pay, generally doesn't qualify as active duty pay unless you have been called into full-time duty for 120 days or more. If you are a commissioned officer of the Public Health Service or of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration militarized by the President of the United States and attached to the armed forces, your active duty military wages earned outside Idaho qualify for this deduction. Enter these wages on line 11.
LINE 12 ADOPTION EXPENSES
If you adopt a child, you may deduct the expenses incurred in the adoption. You may claim legal and medical expenses incurred up to a maximum of $3,000 per adoption. Travel expenses don't qualify. If the expenses are incurred in two or more years, deduct the costs in the year paid until the $3,000 limit has been met. The expenses related to an unsuccessful attempt to adopt aren't deductible. If expenses were claimed in a year prior to such a determination, file an amended return to add back any deduction claimed for the unsuccessful attempt.
LINE 13 IDAHO MEDICAL SAVINGS ACCOUNT CONTRIBUTIONS AND INTEREST
You may contribute up to $2,000 ($4,000 if married filing a joint return) to an Idaho medical savings account and deduct the contribution. Deductible contributions don't include reimbursements that were redeposited into your Idaho medical savings account. Don't include amounts deducted on federal Form 1040.
An Idaho medical savings account is generally established with a bank, savings and loan, or credit union. The account is established to pay eligible medical expenses of the account holder and the account holder's dependents.
Interest earned on the account is included on line 13, but only if included on line 9, Form 40. Add your qualifying contributions to the interest earned on the account. Enter the name of the financial institution and your account number in the spaces provided.
LINE 14 IDAHO COLLEGE SAVINGS PROGRAM

3. Reflects the need for a combination and sequence of special, interdisciplinary or generic care, treatment or other services which are of lifelong or extended duration and individually planned and coordinated.
If the home was maintained for the family member for less than a full year, the deduction is allowed at the rate of $83.33 for each month the home was maintained.
A family member is any person who meets the relationship test to be claimed as a dependent on income tax returns. Refer to the federal Form 1040 instructions for more information.
Maintaining a household means paying more than one-half the expenses incurred for the benefit of all the household’s occupants. Social Security benefits aren't support provided by you but must be included in the computation of total support provided. Some examples of expenses of maintaining a household include: property taxes, mortgage interest, rent, utility charges, upkeep and repairs, property insurance and food consumed on the premises.
LINE 16 IDAHO LOTTERY WINNINGS
You may deduct Idaho lottery prizes of less than $600 per prize included in federal adjusted gross income on line 9, Form 40. You can't deduct lottery prizes from other states.

If you claimed a deduction for health insurance premiums on your federal Form 1040, Schedule A, use the worksheet to calculate the deduction allowed for health insurance premiums. The worksheet follows the priority that itemized deductions first apply to health insurance premiums, then to long-term care insurance.
IDAHO MEDICAL SAVINGS ACCOUNT. If you take money out of your Idaho medical savings account to pay medical insurance premiums, no deduction is allowed. Since the health insurance costs are already deducted or accounted for, they can't be deducted a second time.
SALARY REDUCTION PLANS. Premiums paid through a cafeteria plan or other salary-reduction arrangement can't be included in the Idaho deduction for health insurance costs. For example, if your health insurance payments are deducted from your pay check pretax, they don't qualify for the deduction.
BUSINESS DEDUCTIONS. Premiums deducted as a business expense can't be included in the Idaho deduction for health insurance costs since these amounts are already deducted.
SOCIAL SECURITY MEDICARE A AND B. No deduction is allowed for the amount paid for employerrequired Social Security Medicare A . This is the amount listed as a deduction on almost every federal Form W-2. If you voluntarily enroll in Medicare B or Medicare D, or aren't covered under Social Security and voluntarily enroll in Medicare A, the premiums you paid may be deducted.
IDAHO STANDARD DEDUCTION. If you don't itemize deductions for Idaho income tax purposes, but instead use the Idaho standard deduction, you don't have to reduce your health insurance costs by any amount claimed as a federal itemized deduction.
FEDERAL ITEMIZED DEDUCTION LIMITATIONS. For federal purposes, the amount of medical expenses allowed as a deduction on the federal Form 1040, Schedule A, is required to be reduced by 7.5% of adjusted gross income. The following worksheet shows how the limitation of the 7.5% of adjusted gross income required for federal purposes, affects the amount of health insurance costs deductible for Idaho purposes. If you aren't itemizing deductions for Idaho, skip lines 1-6 and enter zeros on lines 8, 12, and 13.

LINE 19 LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE
You may deduct the amount you paid in premiums for qualified long-term care insurance that aren't otherwise deducted or accounted for. If you claimed a deduction for long-term care insurance on your federal Form 1040, Schedule A, calculate the long-term care insurance allowed as a deduction by using the worksheet in the instructions for line 18.
Qualified long-term care insurance includes any insurance policy that provides coverage for at least twelve consecutive months for yourself, your spouse, or your dependents for one or more necessary diagnostic, preventive, therapeutic, rehabilitative, maintenance or personal care services, provided in a setting other than an acute care unit of a hospital. Group and individual annuities and life insurance policies that provide directly or that supplement long-term care insurance qualify.

Qualified long-term care insurance doesn't include any insurance policy that is offered primarily to provide coverage for:
- Basic Medicare supplement,
- Basic hospital expense,
- Basic medical surgical expense,
- Hospital confinement indemnity,
- Major medical expense,

LINE 22 OTHER SUBTRACTIONS
Identify any other subtraction to which you are entitled and claim the amount on this line. Don't include income earned in another state as a subtraction.

LINE 3 Enter the amount of retirement benefits you (and your spouse) received under the Federal Social Security Act, Box 5 of your Forms SSA-1099. If you or your spouse received Canadian Social Security benefits that are included in your federal taxable income, include those amounts received.
PART D. CREDIT FOR INCOME TAX PAID TO OTHER STATES
When the same income is taxed by both Idaho and another state, you may be entitled to a credit for tax paid to the other state. Use this section to compute the credit. You must attach a copy of the other state’s income tax return and Idaho Form 39R to your income tax return. If your S corporation or partnership paid income tax to another state, attach a copy of Form ID K-1 or the schedule you received from the partnership or S corporation that paid the tax. If credit applies to more than one state, use a separate Form 39R for each state.
Examples of income that may be taxed by both Idaho and another state include:
- Wages earned in another state that has an income tax, such as Oregon or Utah, while living in Idaho.
- Income from a business or profession earned in another state that has an income tax, while a resident of Idaho.
LINE 1 Enter the tax shown on line 22, Form 40.
LINE 2 Enter the total portion of federal adjusted gross income derived in the other state, modified to reflect Idaho additions and subtractions. In computing the income derived in the other state, you must reverse any adjustments to federal taxable income allowed by the other state that aren't applicable to Idaho. If you reported your income derived in the other state by filing an:
- individual return, enter your adjusted gross income from the other state restated to a basis comparable to Idaho adjusted income. For example, if the other state taxes interest received from U.S. obligations, deduct this amount from the other state's adjusted gross income as Idaho doesn't tax this interest.
- S corporation or partnership composite or group return, enter your pro rata share of the S corporation or partnership income derived in the other state.
LINE 3 Enter your Idaho adjusted income from line 13, Form 40.
LINE 4 Divide line 2 by line 3. Round to four digits to the right of the decimal point. For example .66666 is rounded to .6667 and should be entered as 66.67%. The percentage can't exceed 100%.
LINE 6 Enter the other state’s tax due from its tax table or rate schedule less its income tax credits. If your income derived in the other state was reported on a composite or group return filed by an S corporation or partnership, enter your pro rata share of the tax paid by the S corporation or partnership less your pro rata share of the income tax credits. Income tax credits are those credits that relate to income tax. An example of a credit that isn't an income tax credit is a special fuels or gasoline tax credit or refund.
LINE 7 Your allowable credit for tax paid to other states is the smaller of line 5 or line 6. Enter this amount on line 24 of Form 40.
PART E. MAINTAINING A HOME FOR A FAMILY MEMBER AGE 65 OR OLDER OR A FAMILY MEMBER WITH A DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY
If you didn't claim the $1,000 deduction on line 15 of Part B, you may claim a $100 credit for maintaining a home for an immediate family member age 65 or over not including yourself or your spouse, or a family member with a developmental disability, including yourself and your spouse. Refer to the instructions for line 15, Part B. If the home was maintained for the family member less than a full year, the credit is allowed at the rate of $8.33 for each month the home was maintained.
You may claim this credit if your gross income is less than the filing requirement. File Form 40 and attach Form 39R to your return.
Only residents, including Idaho residents on active military duty outside Idaho, may claim this credit.
LINES 1 and 2 Answer the two questions. If you answer yes to either question, you qualify.
