Information related to the requirements of ARS § 12-348(E)(6) concerning attorneys fee awards to a person who prevails in a tax challenge can be found below:
|Calendar Year||Previous Annual Cap||Previous Year’s CPI||Attorney Fee Cap|
The Arizona Attorney General’s Office interprets the statute as requiring adjustments to be made for each calendar year following the 2016 calendar year. The statutory award cap for 2016 was $75,000. The 2016 CPI of 1.6% was then used to calculate the new, higher award cap for 2017, and the 2017 CPI was used to calculate the new, higher award cap for 2018. Subsequent annual adjustments will be made accordingly.
