    The Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 Monday to adopt the property tax levies for the County and for all the other jurisdictions in the county that levy a property tax. State law requires Arizona counties to adopt the fiscal year tax levies by the third Monday in August.

    The levy is the amount of tax revenue that will be generated by the tax rates approved by the Board and the public bodies of the respective jurisdictions based on the assessed values determined by the County Assessor.

    Pima County imposes a primary property tax and three secondary property taxes.

    County levies:
    • Primary (General Fund) - $392.78 million
    • Flood Control District - $29.63 million
    • Library District - $55.25 million
    • Debt Service (bonds) - $32.42 million
    The state also requires the County impose a Fire District Assistance property tax, which the levy in FY 2023 will be $3.89 million. With the Fire District tax, it brings the total tax levy to be collected by the County to $513.99 million. The fiscal year began July 1.

    The tax levies are added to other funds the County collects or receives, most notably fees for County sewer service, and includes grants, fees, fines, and state shared revenues to fund the total $1.9 billion in expenses for the adopted County budget for this fiscal year.

    Besides the County levies, the Board also adopts the levies for all public school districts in the County, municipalities, the Community College District, fire districts, and numerous improvement and facilities districts.

    Levy adoption is the final step in the processes mandated by state law for adoption of the County budget.
