President Donald Trump’s new tax plan kicks off in 2018, causing some Valley residents and people around the nation to pay their property taxes early.
But Ryan Boyd with the Maricopa County Assessor’s Office said the changes probably won’t affect most Maricopa County taxpayers.
“With the recent tax reform that creates a deduction cap of $10,000 for your state and local taxes in general,” he said. “It won’t affect too many people primarily because of the low property taxes that you see compared to other states such as California or New York.”
Most Maricopa County taxpayers pay an average of $2,000 a year for property taxes.
“It might affect the wealthier people in the state, wealthier home owners, wealthier areas like Paradise Valley,” he said.
But Boyd said the average property tax payer won’t see much of a difference from the average amount taxed in 2017.
