- Pursuant to A.R.S. § 9-499.15 of a proposed increase in the use tax rate from 1% to 2.281%, for the purpose of raising revenue to help pay for expenses of the City, including its unfunded liability for police and fire fighter pensions. The Flagstaff voters have already approved a base local transaction privilege tax rate of 2.281% effective July 1, 2019.
