Jeff Oravits Proposes the “Property Tax Fairness Law”


Every year in many cities, towns and counties in Arizona, politicians raise property taxes up to 2% without going to the voters for approval.  This practice must stop and the Arizona Law that allows it should be changed so that any property tax increase, no matter the size, should go to the voters for approval.  That is how sales tax increases are enacted and property taxes should be enacted in the same manner.  Here is what I am proposing:

No town, city or county in the state of Arizona shall have the authority to raise property taxes by any amount without voter approval from the voters of the town, city or county of which the levy shall apply.  Any proposed property tax increase shall be referred to the voters of the town, city or county of which the levy will be applied through Arizonas referral process or by majority vote of the applicable governing political body.

Representative Bob Thorpe and Senator Sylvia Allen have decided to pursue this when the Legislature goes back into session in 2018.

Add your name to the list of supporters and lets stop what has become an “automatic” tax increase and easy way for politicians to squeeze more money out of the hard working people of Arizona.
