Boarding houses do not have a 50% tax exemption the first 75K of  property value like a first home. So if the owner is boarding a person  or persons and not reported it to the government as a boarding house  they are committing tax evasion. Same as somebody in town lending out a  room or two to friends that live there for the school year. Rent  charged is not relevant to the issue because property taxes are  assessed by value of a commercial property, not income on the property.

It is NOT within Moscow  city limits, as has been stated many times her in Visionland.   And, even if its current location were within city limits, it is in a  region that would be zoned as an Agriculture/Forestry Zoning District  (AF).  And as Title 4, Chapter 2, Section 2-2 of the Moscow Code  states:
    Sec. 2-2. Agriculture/Forestry Zoning  District (AF).
    A.  Intent: The purpose of the Agriculture/Forestry (AF) zoning district is  to foster agriculture and forestry land uses while providing for  limited, low-density residential land uses which will not conflict with  farm and forest practices nor place inappropriate demands on rural  public services nor promote the indiscriminate conversion of farm and  forest land to other uses.
    B. Permitted Principal Uses and  Structures:
    1.  Agriculture, including the raising, harvesting, and selling of crops;  on-site storage of grain and seed; the raising and sale of livestock or  poultry;
    dairying  and sale of dairy products; and other similar agricultural,  horticultural, or animal husbandry uses, excluding feedlots with more  than twenty (20)
    2.  Accessory building and uses normal and incidental to the buildings and  uses permitted, including dwellings for persons engaged for farm or  forestry labor provided such dwelling units are located on the farm  owned or operated by the employer.
    3. Forestry, including the raising, harvesting,  and sale of timber and other forest products.
    4. Small sawmills operated as a short-term  or subsidiary use on farms or woodlots.
    5. Home occupations.
    6. Single family dwelling.
    7. Family day care facility and group day  care facility.
    8. Bed and breakfast inn.
    9. Boarding house.
    Now, again:
    This is important to us because . . . ?
    Seeya round town, Moscow.

  OK you are right about who owns the house. But there still is at least one  person in that household that is a boarder.
