A Truth in Taxation notice is published to inform Lake Havasu City property owners of the City’s proposed property tax levy for the upcoming fiscal year. Lake Havasu City is proposing that the property tax rate remain unchanged from the previous year.

The amount of property tax paid by Lake Havasu City property owners to the City is determined by two factors: the property tax rate, as determined by the City, and the assessed value, as determined by the County. Although the City is proposing to keep the property tax rate the same, there is an anticipated increase in total property taxes collected by the City based on increased property values.

Most property owners will experience little change in the City portion of their property tax bill, if the City’s property tax rate remains the same. For example, property owners with a property assessed at $100,000 can expect to pay an additional $3.04 for the year if the property tax rate remains unchanged.

About 6.7 cents of every dollar in general property taxes paid by Lake Havasu City property owners goes to the City. Property taxes collected by the City help fund City services like police, fire, and parks. The remaining 93.3 cents of every dollar of general property taxes paid by property owners, which is not controlled by the City, goes to the public schools, county, community college and various special taxing districts.

Interested citizens are invited to attend the public hearing on Tuesday, June 25, at 5:30 p.m., at the Lake Havasu City Municipal Courthouse, 92 Acoma Blvd., Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

Please contact Jill Olsen, Lake Havasu City Administrative Services Director, at olsenjr@lhcaz.gov or visit the city’s website at www.lhcaz.gov for more information. The information below is worded exactly as required by Section 42-17107 of the Arizona Revised Statutes:
