Historic District

Federal Historic Designation

Pierson Place Historic District is on the National Register of Historic Places. Added in September 2019 thanks to the hard work of Ray & Joey Muench, Charley Jones, and Henry Harding.

Property Tax Reclassification

The State Historic Property Tax (SPT) program offers a substantial reduction in the state property tax assessment for eligible owners. This fifteen-year agreement requires maintenance of the property according to Federal and Arizona State Parks Board standards and limits the use of the property to non-income producing activities.


A property is eligible for this non-commercial property classification if it meets the conditions: listed in the National Register of Historic Places; maintained according to minimum standards established by the State Parks Board; and used for non-income-producing activities.


The application is valid for 15 years with a possible renewal for 15 additional years. To apply for the program, the owner must submit a completed Historic Property Tax Reclassification Application obtained from the county assessor or State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). The application requires two photos: one showing a front view and one showing an angled view of the front and one side of the property. Do not submit Polaroid pictures; standard 4 x 6 snapshots or digital photographs printed out are acceptable. Label the pictures with the name (if applicable) and the address of the property, the owner’s name(s,) the Tax Parcel ID number, and the date of the photos.

The form and photographs should be mailed or delivered to the County Assessor’s Office by June 30th to be enrolled for the following tax year. For example, an application approved by SHPO and returned to the county assessor’s office by August 1, 2020, will qualify a property for the reduction in the 2021 tax year.

Property Owner Requirements and Responsibilities

Any proposed maintenance, alterations, rehabilitation, or restoration other than normal housekeeping activities, that will affect any publicly visible areas of the property must be submitted to the SHPO in written and (if applicable) graphic form prior to implementation. Such work must conform to The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. The property owner is encouraged to contact the SHPO for consultation while the project is in the planning stage.

In addition, the property owner may be required to annually submit to the SHPO a form (furnished by mail from the SHPO), notarized, that the property has been operated and maintained according to the laws, rules, and regulations that govern the program. This statement will include two recent photographs of the property, properly labeled.

Disqualification and Penalties

A property may be disqualified for failure to comply with the laws, rules, and regulations relating to the SPT program OR if the periodic report is not submitted. Disqualified properties may be subject to tax penalties.

RESIDENTS: You can apply for the tax reclassification for your owner-occupied property by June 30th to be enrolled for the following tax year. The process is easy and requires photos with the application. The AZ State Parks website has all of the updated forms.

By statute, owners have to renew every 15 years. Applications go to the County Assessor’s Office and they cannot accept them electronically. They have to be mailed or dropped off in-person.


  1. Check the contributing list.
  2. Download form and instructions from AZ State Parks website.
  3. Complete the form and take pictures of your home.
  4. Mail the materials to Maricopa County Assessor.
  5. County Assessor transfers forms to State Parks Board.
  6. Parks Board gives final OK to change tax status to Historic Preservation Designation.
  7. County Assessor gives final notice to you, the property owner!

Is your home a contributing property? Check the list below to see if you qualify.

Technically, this isn’t a tax reduction but a reclassification. This program changes your Assessment Ratio from 10% to 5%. The Assessment Ratio is the number used to determine the basis of your property taxes. Let’s say a property is valued at $100,000. A non-historic house has an Assessment Ratio of 10%.  In this example that equals $10,000. Your property taxes are taken out of that $10,000 (it usually comes out at being between 12-15% of that number). Joining the tax program means the Assessment Ratio drops to 5% so in the example the taxes would be based on $5000.
