The Average Property Tax Rate
The average tax rate on a home in PIMA County will be approximately 1% of market value. Or 10% of “Assessed Value”. Tucson home Assessed Value will be about 10% of the market value.
For example, a home has a Full Cash Value (Market Value) of $350,000. The Assessed Value would be 10% for the Full Cash Value or Market Value. That would be $35,000. Property taxes will typically be 10% of the Assessed Value. When the math is done, Property Taxes are roughly 1% of the Full Cash or Market Value. For a home with a $350,000 market value, property taxes would be about $3,500 per year.

Real Estate Transactions Are Reported
By law, all Tucson Real Estate transactions must be reported to the Pima County Tax Assessor. And include the price paid for the Tucson Home.
To estimate the Arizona property tax of a home you are thinking of buying, use the current market value of the home. Multiply that value by 1%. It is likely the actual PIMA County property tax bill will be less than the estimated amount. There have been exceptions to this during the recent real estate market melt-down.
Each year, the Assessor will send an updated assessment of the value to the owner. Property taxes are based on the assessed value of a home. The Assessor’s Office utilizes a combination of factors and information to determine the assessed value. The information used will include previous sales in the neighborhood, distance from major intersections or areas zoned differently, topography, view, livable square footage, lot size and components, and more.
The actual valuation is determined by a computer analysis of the information collected. Should a property owner disagree with the assessed value of their home from the Assessor, the homeowner may appeal.
All Arizona property taxes are collected in arrears. The PIMA County Treasurer sends a semi-annual bill to the homeowner. If there is a mortgage on the home the tax bill will be sent to the mortgage servicing company. That assumes an impound account as been set up to pay property taxes.
To Be Clear
The Assessor determines the value of a home or property. The PIMA County Treasurer actually bills you for payment of the property taxes. One more thing. The Pima County Assessor’s Office classifies residential property differently based on use. The specific classification affects property taxes on the home. For more…HERE!
