Editor: A letter to the editor by Jeff Nolan was recently published describing his opposition to Prop 117. It's interesting that Mr. Nolan did not disclose in his letter that he is a property tax consultant in the Phoenix area.

In your July 12, 2012 edition, reporter Steve Ayers gave an unfavorable review of Proposition 117, which is on the November General Election ballot. Mr. Ayers suggested that any fifth grader with basic math skills could understand that Prop 117 won’t be good for taxpayers.

Kevin McCarthy, the group’s president, said a 5 percent limit produces more stability by establishing a steadier growth pattern — something that is less vulnerable to wild swings in valuations that could, in turn, lead to higher jumps in tax bills.

In public-opinion polls, voters uniformly say they favor more spending for K-12 education. Yet, on Tuesday, voters rejected a majority of school-district ballot measures that would have authorized more spending. According to the fiscal eagle-eyes at the Arizona Tax Research Association, there were 51 such measures on the ballot Tuesday. Only 22 of them passed.

As one of his last actions as speaker of the House, Jim Weiers announced that he would appoint a blue-ribbon committee to make recommendations about ways to make state revenues less susceptible to such large cyclical swings. The commission apparently isn't going to get off the ground. But this is but the latest step in a long and futile odyssey to find a new tax system for Arizona that would produce more stable revenues.

PHOENIX (AP) - The average property tax rate in Arizona dropped this year. A business-backed advocacy group, the Arizona Tax Research Association, reports that the statewide average fell from $10.04 per $100 of assessed valuation in 2007 to $9.23 in 2008. The association says one factor behind the decrease is a state requirement to lower tax rates to offset valuation increases.

Legislative Republicans view the state’s equalization property tax as a ticking time bomb that will go off in 2009, but optimism abounds that Jan Brewer’s pending ascension to the Governor’s Office will help them cut the fuse before the clock reaches zero.

Proposition 105 is just one sentence. Seventy-one words about Arizona's ballot-initiative process. But uncertainty abounds within the relatively few words of the seemingly simple initiative. Would it effectively kill all citizens initiatives or just make it more difficult to pass a few dealing with tax increases?

Lobbyists for the owner of a 3,200-acre property in east Mesa pushed in the last legislative session for changes in the law that would have allowed even more lucrative tax breaks than the ones the city is offering for development of the property, according to critics of the bill. Mesa deal will save resort developers $85.5M
