Truth in Taxation Hearing: Notice of Tax Increase
In compliance with section 42-17107, Arizona Revised Statutes, Yuma County is notifying its property taxpayers of Yuma County’s intention to raise its primary property taxes over last year’s level. Yuma County is proposing an increase in primary property taxes of $577,613 or 2.0%.
For example, the proposed tax increase will cause Yuma County’s primary property taxes on a $100,000 home to be $252.88 (total proposed taxes including the tax increase). Without the proposed tax increase, the total taxes that would be owed on a $100,000 home would have been $247.92.
This proposed increase is exclusive of increased primary property taxes received from new construction. The increase is also exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter approved bonded indebtedness or budget and tax overrides.All interested citizens are invited to attend the public hearing on the tax increase that is scheduled to be held on June 18, 2018, at 9:00 a.m., at the Board of Supervisor’s Auditorium, 198 S. Main Street, Yuma, Arizona.
