Why are 2015 values being set now?
Arizona law was changed back in 1995 to define “valuation year” as the year prior to the “tax year”. This law requires the assessment roll be created in the year prior to the actual tax levy and collection. Due to this requirement, the assessor is required to set valuations for 2016 as of January 1, 2015, using a minimum of 18 months sales data. This dictates setting 2016 values using sales data from 2013 and the first half of 2014.
