Notice of Proposed Tax Levy Increase for FY 2021/22
Primary Property Tax Levy & Municipal Streetlight Improvement Districts Property Taxes
The City of Scottsdale hereby gives notice that for fiscal year 2021/22, it may increase its primary property tax levy over last year. The increase in the tax levy includes additions to the property tax base for growth. However, due primarily to an increase in net assessed limited property values, the primary tax rate of $0.5273 may decrease to a rate of up to $0.5039 per $100 of assessed valuation to support its budget expenditures.
Additionally, the City hereby gives notice that it may decrease the tax levies for the Municipal Streetlight Improvement Districts (SLIDs).
