2022/2023 Sources of Funds and Uses of Tax Dollars

Sources of Funds 2022 - 2023

Where Do Your Tax Dollars Go?

Only a portion of your tax dollars goes to fund the operations of the County. By statute, the County is required each year to collect property taxes for the various jurisdictions in Pima County that are authorized to levy such taxes. More than $1.4 billion in property taxes were levied by all jurisdictions throughout the county for fiscal year 2022/23. Only $510.1 million, or nearly 36 percent, of the $1.4 billion, will be collected for the County's General Fund operations and Debt Service requirements, along with funding operations for the County's Library District and Flood Control District. The remaining $891.9 million in property taxes will fund the operating and debt service requirements for the school districts, Pima College, cities and towns, fire districts, and other improvement districts located throughout the county. These jurisdictions have their own governing boards that represent residents located within their boundaries.
