Public Hearing, Truth in Taxation

In compliance with A.R.S. 15-905.01, Arizona Revised Statutes, Dysart Unified School District No. 89 is notifying property taxpayers of Dysart Unified School District’s intention to raise its primary property taxes over the current level to pay for increased expenditures in those areas where the Governing Board has the authority to increase property taxes for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2020. The Dysart Unified School District is proposing an increase in its primary property tax levy of $15,000. A public hearing is scheduled on June 24, 2020.

The amount proposed above will cause Dysart Unified School District’s primary property taxes on a $100,000 home to be $0.10. Without the tax increase, the total taxes that would be owed would have been $0.00.

These proposed amounts are above the qualifying tax levies as prescribed by state law, if applicable. The increase is also exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter approved bonded indebtedness or budget and tax overrides.

The Dysart Unified School District Governing Board will be enforcing the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s guidance to limit all public gatherings to ten people. As such, the June 24 public hearing will be held telephonically/remotely with no public, in-person attendance. Reference: Attorney Generals’ Opinion dated March 13, 2020 Re: Concerns Related to Arizona’s Open Meeting Law and COVID-19. This meeting is open to the public to listen and view at

All interested citizens are invited to submit public comments regarding the public hearing on the proposed tax increase scheduled to be held June 24, 2020 at 6:00 PM by emailing prior to 5:00 PM the day of the meeting.
