In Fountain Hills, 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 Fountain Hills, 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 Fountain Hills, Arizona

Usually, Fountain Hills, Arizona property taxes are decided as a percentage of the property's value. Tax rates differentiate widely, but they typically run from less than 1% up to about 5%.

In order to levy this tax, the tax authorities in Fountain Hills, Arizona must have a uniform formula for figuring out the value of a particular piece of property.

In some ways, value is a subjective thing. For instance, the home in which you grew up is probably worth far more to you than its market value. To get around this, the government uses nothing but objective factors in deciding how much a piece of real property is worth.

To this end, the Fountain Hills, Arizona appraiser will look at things like the state of the real estate market, the size of the land, the existence of additions to the land such as buildings, and the way in which the property is zoned.
