TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Pima County Board of Supervisors has approved a property tax rate increase to support a $1.2 billion budget in order to maintain service levels to residents.

The increase sets a primary tax rate of $3.66 per $100 of assessed value, which is only slightly higher than the existing rate of $3.41.

However, officials say the average taxpayer will essentially be paying the same amount as last year given an 8 percent drop in property values countywide.
