NOTICE OF PROPOSED TAX INCREASE
(PRIMARY PROPERTY TAXES)
Pursuant to A.R.S. § 9-499.15, the City of Flagstaff hereby gives notice it may raise its primary property taxes over last year’s levy of $6,707,510 at a rate of 0.8334 to $6,892,243 with a rate of 0.7933.
A schedule of the proposed increased tax rate and the written report or data that supports the proposed increased tax rate are attached (scroll down).
This notice does not mean that the City is increasing primary property taxes to the rate of 0.7933 but that the City Council will be considering and discussing a possible primary property tax increase during Council Budget Meetings scheduled for April 23-24, 2019.
Should the City Council believe it is appropriate to increase the primary property tax levy (revenue), the City will follow the Truth in Taxation hearing requirements pursuant to state law, and will publish and post a notice of a public hearing to be held at the following date and time:
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
City of Flagstaff Council Chambers
211 W. Aspen Avenue
Flagstaff, Arizona 86001
Annually property taxes must be approved by ordinance. A first reading of an ordinance to approve the primary property tax rate set by Council may occur at a public meeting of the City Council on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. A final reading of the ordinance may occur on Wednesday, July 2, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
By posting this notice up to the maximum allowable, it provides City Council with the greatest flexible in deciding the City’s property tax levy (revenue) for FY 2020 Budget. Without posting this notice, the City would not be able to consider a primary property tax increase for the FY 2020 Budget.
Please contact Brandi Suda, Finance Director (928) 213-2217 if you have any questions.
