Since no one from Firstfruits Foundation participated in a telephonic hearing before the Idaho Board of Tax Appeals last week, Custer County Assessor Jacquel Bruno said 17 buildings and 70 acres now valued at $2.3 million will be taxed accordingly.

Previously valued at $750,000, Bruno said the Living Waters Ranch properties will be taxed at 1 percent of the new market value. That equals $23,000 in property taxes. The change in value and tax status follows an appraiser visiting the ranch during the summer on behalf of the county.
