Cochise County’s Fiscal Year 2021-2022 tax rates have officially been adopted by the Cochise County Board of Supervisors. During today’s special meeting, the Board voted to adopt the tax rates for all Cochise County taxing entities.
Despite a proposed tax levy increase of $583,224 or 2.24 percent, followed by a Truth in Taxation hearing on July 14, 2021, the Board of Supervisors voted 2 - 1 for the primary property tax rate to remain the same. The primary property tax rate of 2.6747, which is the same as the prior year, will result in an increased levy of 0.24% due to increased property valuations.
In addition to setting the County property tax rate, the Board of Supervisors also determine and set the tax rates for the Flood Control District, the Library District, and for the Light Improvement Districts in Bowie, Golden Acres, Naco, Pirtleville, and Sunsites.
Other Special Districts such as the Cochise Community College district, Fire, Water, Hospital Districts, and the seven incorporated municipalities, each set their own tax levies which are determined by their respective elected boards.
