Despite increasing values resulting in increasing revenues, in compliance with Arizona law, the City of Scottsdale is notifying its property taxpayers of its intention to raise its primary property taxes over last year’s level. Scottsdale is proposing an increase in primary property taxes of $931,256 or 2.66 percent.

This proposed increase is exclusive of increased primary property taxes received from new construction. The increase is also exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter approved bonded indebtedness or budget and tax overrides.

All interested Scottsdale residents are encouraged to attend the public hearing on the tax increase that is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, June 7, 2022, at 5:00 p.m., at the City of Scottsdale City Hall Kiva, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd., Scottsdale, Arizona.

Scottsdale City Council meetings may be held virtually with access by the public limited to virtual attendance through electronic means. However, the meeting is currently planned to be held in person at the City Hall Kiva and also broadcast electronically through Cox Cable Channel 11 and streamed online at (search “live stream”).
