Truth in Taxation Public Hearing July 6, 2021
Posted May 3, 2021


Truth in Taxation Hearing: Notice of Tax Increase / Verdad en la Audiencia Fiscal: Aviso de Aumento de Impuestos (below)

Primary Property Taxes

In compliance with section 42‐17107, Arizona Revised Statutes, the City of Somerton is notifying its property taxpayers of its intent to raise its primary property taxes over last year’s level. The City of Somerton is proposing an increase in primary property taxes of $42,182 or 6.17%.

For example, the proposed tax increase will cause your City of Somerton primary property tax on a $100,000 home to be $165.47 (total proposed tax includes the tax increase). Without the proposed tax increase, the total taxes that would be owed on a $100,000 home would have been $155.86.

This proposed increase is exclusive of increased primary property taxes received from new construction. The increase is also exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter approved bonded indebtedness or budget and tax overrides. 

All interested citizens are invited to attend the public hearing on the tax increase that is scheduled to be held on July 6, 2021 at 7:00 p.m., at Somerton City Hall, 143 N State Avenue, Somerton, Arizona.
