In Sedona, Arizona, the government imposes a tax (a legally-mandated payment made to the government) on real property. "Real property" is specified as any piece of land, or object permanently or semi-permanently attached to the land (such as buildings, trees, minerals, etc.).

Property taxes in Sedona, Arizona are calculated as a percentage of the appraised value of the property. Property taxes are paid to the state or local government at regular (generally yearly) intervals.

Federal authorities do not gather a property tax. Only state and local governments gather property taxes, as a general matter.

How Property Tax is Calculated in Sedona, Arizona

Most often, property taxes in Sedona, Arizona are simply a set percentage of the property's value. Across the country, state authorities impose a wide range of various tax rates. The highest rates in the country are in the area of 5% of the property's value, and the lowest are less than 1%.

In order to impose this tax, the government of Sedona, Arizona initially has to decide the taxable value of a piece of property.

As you probably know, value is not always objective. For example, the owners of family heirlooms usually place far more value on them than their objective monetary value. So tax officials have to be careful to only use objective criteria in valuing property for tax purposes.

With that in mind, the land appraisers in Sedona, Arizona look at different factors, including the state of the local real estate market, the square footage of the house, and the permissible use (zoning) of the land.
