Property taxed in Arizona is classified as Real or Secured Personal Property -or- Unsecured Personal Property. Unsecured Personal Property consists primarily of business property and mobile or manufactured homes. Unless your manufactured home is permanently affixed to your land and you have applied for affixture from the Assessor's Office, you will receive one statement for your land and one statement for your manufactured home. If you have recently affixed your manufactured home, please check with the Assessor's Office at 928-524-4086; because the Assessor's Office is always working at least one year ahead, the affixture might have been effective for the next tax year but not the current year.

Please note that there is a transaction fee for using these methods of payment. Navajo County does not receive or benefit from any of the transaction fees charged by this company.

Your tax liability covers the calendar year, from January through December. The first installment on that liability is due by November 1. The second installment is due by May 1 even though this date is in the next tax year.
Your taxes fund the various jurisdictions over their fiscal year, which is usually from July 1 through June 30.
Taxes are calculated based on a rate applied to the limited value of your property. The tax rate is a combination of the rates of all the jurisdictions that have a property tax where you live such as county, city, school districts, and fire districts. There is a Primary Tax Rate and a Secondary Tax Rate. Primary taxes are used to pay the operating expenses of a jurisdiction and the rate is applied to the Limited Value of your property. Secondary taxes are used to pay for special districts, such as fire districts, and other voter-approved items, such as bonds and budget overrides.
The calculation is as follows:
Primary Tax = Limited Value times Assessment Ratio times Primary Tax Rate divided by $100.
Secondary Tax = Limited Value times Assessment Ratio times Secondary Tax Rate divided by $100.
TOTAL TAX = Primary Tax + Secondary Tax
Tax increases are a result of either increased property valuations, higher tax rates, or both.
Your tax amount is a function of the Assessed Valuation and the various tax rates established by the various political subdivisions in which your property is located. If you believe your valuation is too high, please contact the Navajo County Assessor's Office at 928-524-4086. They can help you through the appeals process. If you believe your tax rate is too high, please contact the appropriate political subdivision(s) listed on your tax bill.
If you have difficulty paying your taxes, there are some programs available that may help you. The Assessor's Office can provide you with more information.
The Treasurer's Office cannot change the amount of your tax unless directed to make the change by the Board of Supervisors. If you believe your taxes are incorrect because of the assessed valuation, classification, exemption amount, or you were assessed a tax for an incorrect political subdivision, the Navajo County Assessor's Office can initiate the required correction. We will make the change once we receive direction from the Board of Supervisors. We always recommend that you pay the incorrect amount of tax. If the correction is made after the delinquency date, you will be charged interest on the unpaid amount of tax. If you pay the incorrect amount and your tax is lowered, we will refund you the overpayment of tax plus interest at the prevailing rate established by the Arizona Department of Revenue. If your taxes are increased, you will be allowed 90 days to pay the increased amount of tax without interest. Any balance due on the original amount will be charged interest.
No. We mail out one tax bill, typically in mid- to late September. If your mortgage company has reached out to us to request the tax bill, you will receive a postcard providing the basic tax information rather than a full bill including payment coupons. If you have not received your tax bill by October 1st, please call our office at 928-524-4172.
The "convenience" (or "transaction") fee charged for credit card, debit card, and e-check payments--whether made online, over the phone, or in person--covers the cost of accepting and processing those payments. Navajo County does not keep any of that fee. 100% goes to our electronic payment servicer who provides those payment capabilities. This provider went through the county RFP process and was chosen primarily because their cost to the taxpayer was lower than their competitors.

Yes. Although the Treasurer makes every effort to mail a tax bill to all property owners, the only notification required by Arizona Revised Statutes is the publication of an official notice of tax in a newspaper of general circulation in the county.
Failure to receive a tax statement is not a legal reason for waiving interest. The Treasurer must assess interest on all delinquent taxes at the rate of 16% per year (simple), prorated monthly on the first day of each month.
According to state law, once the delinquency date has passed, interest starts to accrue at 16% per year prorated monthly. This means you will pay 1.333% on the amount of tax due whether you pay on the first day of the month or the last day of the month. For taxes that are not paid before January of the following year, an additional $5.00 or 5% penalty is assessed. In February, your delinquent tax lien will be offered for sale at our Tax Lien Auction. This is a sale of the lien for delinquent taxes, not the sale of your property. After three (3) years from the date of the sale, the purchaser of your taxes can foreclose on the lien and acquire your property.
No, we cannot accept partial payments for the redemption of tax liens. If a tax lien has been sold on your property, all delinquent taxes, interest, penalties, and fees must be paid in full according to state law.
During the closing of a typical real estate transaction, tax amounts are prorated by the title company and the buyer is given credit for the seller's portion. You should review the settlement statement provided by the title company to confirm this and contact the title company with any questions you may have regarding that calculation.
Property taxes are assessed against the property, not the person. The Treasurer’s Office does not prorate taxes between new and prior owners.
Ownership records are updated each time a deed is recorded with the Navajo County Recorder's Office. For more information concerning title recordings, visit the Navajo County Recorder's website or call 928-524-4194. Property transfers occur on a daily basis in large volumes. Once the deed has been recorded, the ownership change is made to the tax roll by the Navajo County Assessor. Ownership changes to the tax roll made by the Assessor are reflected on the Property Information Page the day after the change is entered.
It is the responsibility of the new owner and prior owner to notify the Assessor of the change in ownership once the title has been transferred. For questions, contact the Navajo County Assessor's Office at 928-524-4086.
The Navajo County Assessor is responsible for exemptions. Information about exemptions can be obtained by contacting the Assessor at 928-524-4086 or by visiting their website.
