Chandler Provides Value to Residents

Chandler taxpayers can be assured that their community continues to have some of the lowest cost of services, utility charges, staffing levels and taxes in the Valley of the Sun.

Chandler staff regularly compares utility rates, tax levels, and staffing levels with other cities to see how Chandler compares in terms of the cost of key essential services, the impact of sales tax and property tax rates, and the efficiency of the workforce in providing service to the citizens.

As shown on the following charts, as of July 1, 2014, the City of Chandler has:

  • the second lowest total cost of municipal services and taxes in the Valley, which incorporates utility rates, sales taxes paid, and property taxes paid by a typical homeowner
  • the lowest “base” local sales tax rate in the State at 1.5% which is matched only by Town of Gilbert and Huachuca City.
  • the second lowest combined primary and secondary property tax rate of the eight largest municipalities in the Valley
  • the lowest combined monthly utility bill, based upon single family residence using 9,000 gallons per month
  • the second lowest number of employees per 1,000 of population indicating that the City’s workforce is very efficient and effective in delivering necessary services
