Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora today asked the Arizona Legislature to extend the deadline for property owners to pay the second half of 2019 property taxes to June 30th. Taxes on all commercial and residential properties are currently due and are considered past due May 1st.
â€œWith the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to impact our citizens, many of whom have lost their job, the last thing people need to worry about right now is how to pay their property taxes,â€ said Treasurer Royce Flora. â€œSome people are struggling with paying rent, utilities, and food for their family so we are asking the legislature to give us the authority to extend the deadline to pay property taxes to help families,â€ he added.
The Maricopa County Treasurerâ€™s Office is also asking the Legislature to give all County Treasurers throughout the state the authority to waive all penalties and interest associated with any delinquent property tax.
â€œWe hope the State Legislature will make a quick decision in favor of taxpayers at a time when they need Government help the most,â€ said Treasurer Flora.
