Fire Coverage included in Sabino Mountain Property Taxes

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Sabino Mountain owners do not pay for subscription fire to Rural-Metro. As of a few years ago Sabino Mountain owners are part of the Hidden Valley Fire District and therefore their fire coverage is included in the yearly property taxes and is tax deductible. Most of the homes in the Catalina Foothills have to pay for fire coverage as a subscription service and therefore, Sabino Mountain is in a better situation. For instance– owners of a 3,500 square foot home were paying about $700 in annual fire subscription costs; now it is included in the property taxes and although as a result the property taxes went up, it usually went up less than the fire subscription costs and unlike before the cost of fire coverage is tax deductible.

I still see some listing agents put this fire coverage information incorrectly in the listing to the owners’ detriment.
