Understanding Arizona Property Taxes
Overview of Arizona Taxes
Arizona collects a total of $52,646,172,000 in revenue every year. Of that, $7,747,407,000 comes from property taxes, or 14.7% of total revenue. As a result, Arizona has the 38th highest property tax rate in the country, which is 29.7% less than the national average of 1.06%. Generally speaking, states where property taxes make up a higher percentage of total state revenue have higher property tax rates, and states where property taxes make up a smaller percentage of state revenue have lower property tax rates.
How does this translate to what homeowners actually pay? The average home value across Arizona is $214,099, meaning the average Arizona homeowner pays 0.75% of their home value every year in property taxes, or $7.49 for every $1,000 in home value.
