Mohave County Truth in Taxation Information
MOHAVE COUNTY, AZ (July 20, 2021) –Mohave County has prepared its truth in taxation information for the fiscal year 2021-2022 budget in compliance with Arizona Revised Statutes §42-17107.
According to the 2021 levy limit referenced by the Arizona Department of Revenue Property Tax Oversight Commission (PTOC), Mohave County’s maximum allowable primary property tax rate is $2.3944 and the truth in taxation rate is $1.8240. The County is proposing a rate of $1.9000 which is $0.0760 higher than the truth in taxation rate and $0.4944 less than the maximum allowable rate. The proposed levy for fiscal year 2021-2022 is $40,725,478 which is an increase of $1,591,811 or 4.2% above the PTOC truth in taxation amount. This amount is $10,597,198 less than the maximum allowable levy limit.
The proposed tax increase will cause Mohave County’s primary property taxes on a $100,000 home to be $190.00. Without the proposed tax increase, the total taxes that would be owed on a $100,000 home would have been $182.40. The increase is exclusive of increased primary property taxes received from new construction and is also exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter approved bonded indebtedness or budget and tax overrides.
The County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on the proposed fiscal year 2021-2022 budget, tax rates and levies on Monday, August 2, 2021 beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Mohave County Administration Building, 700 W. Beale Street, Kingman, Arizona. All interested citizens are invited to attend.
