TUCSON, Ariz. — The Pima County Board of Supervisors has approved a
property tax rate increase to support a $1.2 billion budget in order to maintain
service levels to residents.
The increase sets a primary tax rate of $3.66 per $100 of assessed value, which
is only slightly higher than the existing rate of $3.41.
However, officials say the average taxpayer will essentially be paying the same
amount as last year given an 8 percent drop in property values countywide.
