Coconino County is sponsoring a “Truth in Taxation” public hearing at 6 p.m. June 27 at Flagstaff’s County Administrative Center to give details about its proposed 2 percent property tax hike.
Publishing a Truth in Taxation notice is required by Arizona state law, according to a press release. The change from last year’s primary property taxes would be equivalent to $182,986, according to the government website. The change for an individual homeowner whose property is worth $100,000, for example, would amount to less than $2.
This hearing is scheduled for the center’s first-floor meeting room at 219 E. Cherry Ave. in Flagstaff.
In addition to the primary property tax request, three affiliated County districts are issuing similar requests. Coconino County’s library district is proposing an increase of 3.99 percent ($161,556), its public health district desires a hike of 3.95 percent, and the flood control district requests an increase of 4.66 percent ($115,994), with all three requests regarding secondary property taxes.
Truth in Taxation hearings for the library, health and flood control districts are also slated for 6 p.m. June 27 at the cetner in the Coconino County Board Chambers.
