Truth in Taxation Notice
Goodyear tax rates remain near or less than $1.60 for fifth straight year
GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (June 5, 2009) In compliance with section 42-17107, Arizona Revised Statutes, the City of Goodyear is notifying its property taxpayers of Goodyear's intention to raise its primary property taxes over last year?s level. Goodyear is proposing an increase in primary property taxes of $107,889 or 2 percent.
The proposed tax levy increase will cause the City of Goodyear's primary property taxes rate on a $100,000 home to decrease from $66.78 to $64.50.
This proposed levy 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 at 6 p.m., Monday, June 22, 2009, at Goodyear Justice Center, 185 N. 145th Avenue (Southeast corner of 145th Avenue and Van Buren), Goodyear, Arizona. This news release meets requirements for public notification under state law.
Note that the City of Goodyear's combined primary and secondary property tax rate, including voter approved debt service, will be near or under $1.60 for the fifth straight year. This year's combined property tax rate is estimated at $1.60 and this amount is equal to last year's rate. This means that if the assessed value of your property did not change from last year, your City of Goodyear property taxes will stay the same. If your assessed property value went up, your City of Goodyear property taxes will go up. If your assessed property value went down, your City of Goodyear property taxes will go down.
