Taxes have dropped for just about all properties with declining property valuations over the last few years.

Yes. I think, though, I would rather have my property value back than the few hundred bucks in lower taxes. It would be nice to be more "liquid". Feeling good about taxes falling because values have tanked is a little penny wise and pound foolish.

Does anyone know when these are due?? I'm new to AZ property taxes. In MN, they send off the taxes by January and the amount is known for a year in advance.

Do I pay for the whole year or just 1/2 right now??

You can pay the whole year if you choose to. The two halves are due April 1 and October 1, delinquent after May 1 and November 1.

Or you can pay the full amount by December 31 and avoid penalties (for not having paid the 1/2 by Nov 1).

I just cut them occasional checks for various amounts with my parcel number in the memo. Don't send it to the pob--send it to the physical address. You can view your payments online 24/7. Btw, if you pay in advance; put the tax year in the memo, too.

I think people are pleased because they have come to expect being overcharged, ie values go down but not taxes.

Our taxes went up on our town home in north Phoenix, not in the best of neighborhoods at that. Value is in the toilet on top of it. But taxes down on the other homes, so that helps a bit.

Don't expect your taxes to go down a lot.

Valuations on which your taxes are assessed have plummeted, so the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors have jacked up the tax rate to ensure the city can meet it's ever growing budget. Your valuation may have dropped 20%, but you may only see a 5% drop in your tax. They pretty much dream up a budget, then set the tax rate to meet it. Kind of like going to your boss and demanding a raise because you need more money. Funny how the tax rate did not drastically get reduced when valuations (and taxes) doubled during the housing boom. They just pumped up the Budget instead, and aim to keep it there!
