Crippling Taxes

"The public hearing is open for comment to all Buckeye residents. Residents can complete a comment card to provide input on the proposed property tax agenda item."

The city of Buckeye is holding a public hearing at its regularly scheduled City Council meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, so residents can comment on the property taxes the city collected from one fiscal year to the next.

Buckeye City Hall is at 530 E. Monroe Avenue.

The primary property tax on a $100,000 home will remain at $180, as it has for the past six years. This is $10.95 over the truth in taxation amount of $169.05.

Buckeye’s total revenue from its primary property taxes will increase more than $543,271, a 6.48% increase over last year. The increase is due to the rise in the net assessed property values of residential homes within Buckeye.

This proposed tax does not include any primary property taxes received from new construction, any changes that may occur from property tax levies, or voter-approved bonds or budget and tax overrides.

The public hearing is open for comment to all Buckeye residents. Residents can complete a comment card to provide input on the proposed property tax agenda item. The city council agenda and council packet will be available by the close of business on June 18 at buckeyeaz.gov/meetings-minutes.
