2019 Rental Tax Increase

URGENT LEGAL UPDATE

Two cities in Arizona are increasing their TPT taxes (Scottsdale is increasing to 1.75% on February 1, 2019 and Mesa is increasing to 2.0% as of March 1, 2019) and all landlords with rentals in those two cities must send their tenants a notice at least 30 days prior to the effective date. A sample notice is on our website as L-18. As a reminder, Section 8 leases are not affected by this issue and the Landlord can’t pass on this tax increase until the renewal period as part of the new rent. Please call our office if you have any questions or concerns.
