3/26/20147/2/2014TaxUnder Arizona law, City of Phoenix property owners pay a combination of two tax levies: a primary tax levy and a secondary tax levy.  City staff intends to recommend a proposed decrease in the primary property tax rate of 11.23 cents per $100 of assessed valuation for fiscal year 2014-15 and a proposed increase of 11.23 cents per $100 of assessed valuation in the secondary property tax rate for fiscal year 2014-15. If approved, the combined property tax rate will remain unchanged at $1.82 per $100 dollars of assessed valuation and the City's total annual property tax levy will be increased by about $9.6 million;  however, cumulatively for the last five years, there has been approximately $534 million in savings for Phoenix property owners.Budget and ResearchPhoenix Municipal Charter Chapter XVIII,
