What is an expenditure limitation?
The State of Arizona imposes an expenditure limitation on all Arizona cities and towns. This limitation is based on a formula adopted by the State Legislature in 1979 and determines the amount of money that can be used to fund municipal services each year, regardless of the money the Town collects via taxes and fees. The limitation, or “base limit,” is based on expenditures from Fiscal Year 1979/80.

  • Proposition 480 does not raise existing taxes.
  • Proposition 480 does not impose new or additional taxes.
  • Proposition 480 provides local control of the Town’s annual budget to meet local needs.
  • Proposition 480 does not permit the Town to expend more than it receives in revenue.
