Chapter 7 Exemptions in Idaho

Protect Your Property with Avery Law

Most people’s fear when filing for bankruptcy is that they will lose all of their property with no way of getting it back. Fortunately, Idaho offers certain exemptions which can protect some or even all of your property while still reaping the benefits of filing for bankruptcy.

What exemptions does the state offer?

As an opt out state, Idaho does not allow debtors to use any federal bankruptcy exemptions. Married couples are also given the chance to double their exemption amounts, unless otherwise prohibited by the law. This means that both spouses can claim the full exemption amount for any property that they have ownership interest in.

Some of the most common Idaho exemptions include:

  • Homestead or residential property: up to $100,000
  • Personal property: up to $7,500 of household appliances and up to $750 per item
  • Motor vehicles: up to $7,000
  • Wildcard: up to $800 of any property you own

Exemption amounts in Idaho are always changing, so it is important to stay up to date on the latest revisions before you file for Chapter 7. An awareness of what property you can keep when it’s all said and done is highly beneficial, particularly for your own peace of mind throughout the bankruptcy process.
