Michael Crow: Arizona State University is looking for new ways to generate revenue without imposing new taxes on residents.

By Michael Crow, opinion contributor | The Republic

Laurie Roberts’ Dec. 18 column (“Arizona’s largest office complex pays no property taxes“) misrepresents Arizona State University’s use of its land to generate revenue for the university as a “scheme” that is diverting money from K-12.

First, state universities are not depriving K-12 schools of property tax revenue. The land parcels in question have never produced property tax revenue for those schools; no action by universities is taking away any property tax that had been received by schools.
