FLORENCE, AZ – Valuations for the 2013 tax year will be mailed today to all individuals who own property in Pinal County. Valuations are set through formula prescribed by state statute. The formula has a lagging indicator meaning that the formula factors in sales of property in 2010 through June 2011.
In general, the valuation most property owners will receive will reflect a decline in value over prior years. It is not a reflection of what the value of your property is at this moment in time in 2012.
“Over the last several years, property values have taken a beating throughout the country and certainly here in Pinal County,” said Pinal County Assessor L. Paul Larkin. “There are some signs of recovery on the horizon and home sales are picking up pace. Pinal County is still anticipating a growth in the net population for 2012.”
