Frequently asked questions from County of Mohave

I own a mobile home. Why did I get two tax notices?

Featured in Pay Property taxes, County of Mohave

Property taxed in Arizona is classified as Real Property and Personal Property. Personal Property consists primarily of business equipment and mobile homes. Unless your mobile home is permanently affixed to your land and you have applied for affixture from the Assessor’s Office, you will receive one notice for your land and one notice for your mobile home. If an application for affixture is made after the Assessor’s deadline, you will still receive two separate notices the first year.

When are property taxes due?

Featured in Pay Property taxes, County of Mohave

Property taxes are due October 1.

Arizona law allows the option for property taxes to be paid in two installments on most property. The first installment is due October 1st and becomes past due after 5:00 p.m. November 1st. The second installment is due March 1st of the following year, and becomes past due after 5:00 p.m. May 1st.

If the taxes are $100 or less, they become due and payable in full October 1st and past due after December 31st . If both installments of taxes over $100 are paid by December 31st in one payment, any interest accrued after November 1st is no longer applicable. If any of the past due dates fall on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the past due date is 5:00 p.m. the next business day.

The County does honor postmark if your payment is mailed to the Treasurer’s Office.

I sold my property but I received the tax notice. What should I do?

You may forward the current tax bill to the new owner, if you know their name and address. You may return the notice to the Mohave County Treasurer, P O Box 712, Kingman, AZ, 86402, with a note the property has been sold. Please include any known information, such as the name of the new owner or the date of sale.

It is also helpful to advise the Treasurer if the new owner lives at the property address. This helps get the tax notice to the new owner as quickly as possible.

The Assessor’s office is responsible for listing ownership as well as values. Contact the Assessor at: Mohave County Assessor’s, P O Box 7000, Kingman, AZ 86402, or you may telephone them at 928-753-0703, to verify that a record of your sale has been received, or to verify the Assessor’s time line for changes and updates.

When are Mohave County Property tax bills mailed?

Featured in Pay Property taxes, County of Mohave

Mohave County Property tax bills are usually mailed in September of each year and include coupons for the 1st and 2nd installments. This is the only notice a taxpayer will receive unless taxes are delinquent. Delinquent tax notices are mailed in June and December for Real and Personal Property. Taxes are due and payable regardless if the taxpayer receives a notice or not. 

What if I think my property taxes are too high?

Featured in Pay Property taxes, County of Mohave

You can file an appeal when you receive the notice of value. They are usually mailed to the property owners in the beginning of February each year in Mohave County. The due date for appeal as well as the process of appeal is mentioned on your notice of value.

Please note that the appeal process begins when the property owner receives the notice of value – not when the property owner receives the tax notice. Taxes are based on assessed values and tax rates. The Assessor establishes the assessed value of the property and each taxing jurisdiction establishes their rate. These tax rates change annually as each jurisdiction establishes their budget, and the property assessed values can change each year, as well. 

What are Weekly Unemployment Insurance Claims?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Arizona

The weekly claim filing process (also referred to as weekly certification) is used to verify that you were unemployed during the week and are eligible to receive benefit payments (provided that you qualify monetarily and are determined eligible to receive benefits).

Weekly claims are filed by individuals who have applied for Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits and/or have an existing Arizona Unemployment Insurance Claim with a monetary balance (meaning, you still have money remaining in your total benefit entitlement).

What information or documents do I need to apply for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits in the State of Arizona?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Arizona

The following information is needed to file an application (initial claim) for benefits in Arizona:

  • Your Social Security Number
  • Arizona Driver's License or Arizona State Issued ID (Note: you may still complete your application without these two items)
  • Your mailing address, city, state and ZIP code
  • If you live in Arizona, know the county where you reside
  • The names, addresses, and phone numbers of all your employers for the last 18 months
  • The last day you worked immediately prior to filing your UI claim
  • If you received severance, vacation, holiday or payment for unused sick pay: give the amount (before deductions) and the date it was paid to you
  • The name and local number of your union hall, if applicable
  • Alien Registration Number, if applicable
  • Copy # 4 of your DD Form 214 if released from the military in the last 18 months
  • SF 8 or SF 50 if employed in Federal Civilian service in the last 18 months
  • If you are collecting a pension (other than Social Security), you will need the start date of the pension and the monthly benefit amount

When you apply for UI benefits, you must provide the correct mailing address and telephone number for your most recent employer (the individual or company you worked for immediately prior to filing your application for benefits).

When can I apply for Unemployment Insurance in Arizona?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Arizona

Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits are not retroactive: therefore, you should apply for UI Benefits as soon as possible after the last day of work. If you are still currently working, you will need to wait until after your last day of work to complete your application for UI benefits.

What happens if I forget to file my weekly claims?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Arizona

All weeks must be filed (certified) in order, without a break. If you miss a week, you will be able to file for the current week and the prior week (the one you missed filing for) only. If you miss filing your weekly claims for more than two weeks, the weekly claim filing system will no longer recognize you. 

Failing to file a weekly claim can result in a delay in having your benefits approved and/or in receiving your weekly benefit payments. If you receive a message indicating that there is no record of your Social Security Number, the system is missing two or more of your most recent weekly claims (meaning that the two previous consecutive benefit weeks were not submitted for processing/payment in a timely manner).

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Featured in Corona COVID-19 Response, State of Arizona

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.

Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.

People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
