PIMA COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

On Tuesday, June 20 the Pima County Board of Supervisors passed the property tax measure by a three to two vote.  

This increase means that homeowners will pay a little less than $20 extra a year in additional property taxes, which will be used to repair and maintain roads in the county.

Pima County is the only county in Arizona that does not have a sales tax.
