The Club opposed HB2060, which would have allowed Paradise Valley and Litchfield Park (among other small towns) to implement a new property tax.
The bill, pushed by the town of Paradise Valley, initially would have allowed the Town Council to implement the tax without a vote of the people. A subsequent amendment required a public vote, but that change simply wasn’t enough to garner our support.
Property taxes in Arizona are subject to limits on how much taxes can increase. This bill would have placed this tax outside those constitutional limits.
