Throughout the state, Yavapai County is known for providing quality service and low taxes. Tax increases in Yavapai County have been few and have been implemented only when necessary. In 2019 the Board of Supervisors addressed two important public safety issues: The Criminal Justice Center, and the County’s responsibility to fund the pensions of the Sheriff’s deputies that keep our citizens safe. The Board of Supervisors voted to increase the primary property tax in the county by $30 per $100,000. The money is divided almost equally between the Criminal Justice Center and the County’s Public Safety Personnel Retirement System (PSPRS) unfunded liability.
