  • Property Tax on Leased PV

    In 2013, the Arizona Department of Revenue proposed to tax all leased solar panels. Solar leasing companies filed suit. In a 2015,  Superior Court decision found that the DOR policy was illegal but individual counties could choose to tax these leased panels. Presumably, any such taxes would be passed through to the homeowners with the leased panels. Such a charge would likely greatly reduce any savings from the panels, since the tax is estimated to be approximately $150 per year for the average solar installation.
