"property taxes on a $100,000 home to be $56.312. Without the tax increase, the total taxes that would be owed would have been $0.1135."

The Avondale Elementary School district will hold a public hearing on the proposed tax increase at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 9.

The hearing will be held at 295 W. Western Avenue.

In compliance with §15-905.01, Arizona Revised Statutes, Avondale Elementary School District is notifying its property taxpayers of its intention to raise its primary property taxes over the current level to pay for increased expenditures in those areas where the governing board has the authority to increase property taxes for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

The Avondale Elementary School District is proposing an increase in its primary property tax levy of $2.3 million. The amount proposed above will cause Avondale Elementary School District’s primary property taxes on a $100,000 home to be $56.312. Without the tax increase, the total taxes that would be owed would have been $0.1135.

These amounts proposed are above the qualifying tax levies as prescribed by state law, if applicable. 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 proposed tax increase.
