Arizona lawmakers have approved legislation that would eliminate a requirement that homeowners submit an affidavit to receive a tax rebate.
The bill was met with overwhelming approval by the Senate Thursday in a 29-0 vote. With the legislation, residential property owners would no longer have to declare every two years if a property is their primary residence.
Instead, the bill proposes county assessors periodically notify homeowners by mail.
If a home is not owner-occupied or the owner doesn’t respond on time, it would not qualify for the tax break.
This bill would revise a provision that was part of a massive economic development package approved by the Legislature last year.
