The Arizona Property Tax Cap Amendment, also known as Prop 13 Arizona to its supporters, did not make the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of Arizona as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have limited property taxes in the state by capping the property tax rate at 0.5% for residential property and 1.0% for other real property. In addition, according to the Arizona Secretary of State's website, it would have also eliminated all exceptions to the tax caps and would have limited valuation increases to 2% or less per year.[1]



  • Lynne Weaver, chairwoman of the campaign, said that the measure targeted the levy because “it is the meanest and cruelest tax."[2]

Path to the ballot

According to reports, petition drive organizers must have collected 259,213 valid signatures from registered voters by the July 5, 2012 petition drive deadline in order to have made the ballot.

According to reports, the measure did not file signatures by the deadline.[3]
