The Prescott City Council voted on October 11, 2022, to adopt Ordinance No. 2022-1801 eliminating the 0.75% transaction privilege tax dedicated to paying down the City’s unfunded liability in the Arizona Public Safety Personnel Retirement System (PSPRS).

The current tax rate has been in place since January 1, 2018, after citizens voted for Proposition 443 to increase the tax by three-quarters of one percent. The increase was dedicated to paying down the City’s unfunded pension liability for public safety personnel, which at the time was around $85 Million. Proposition 443 called for the tax to sunset after 10 years, or if the unfunded liability dropped below $1.5 Million.
