What is an Affidavit of Real Property Value?

A.R.S. §§ 11-1133 and 11-1137(B) requires all buyers and sellers of real property or their agents to complete and attest to this Affidavit. Failure to do so constitutes a class 2 misdemeanor and is punishable by law.

The County Assessors and the Department of Revenue use data obtained from the affidavits to develop tables and schedules for the uniform valuation of properties based on fair market value. Data supplied for an individual property will not directly affect the assessment or taxes of that property.

A.R.S. § 11-1134 exempts certain transfers from completion of the Affidavit of Property Value. See the list of exemption codes listed on the Affidavit of Property Value. If the transfer meets the criteria for an exemption, do not complete the Affidavit. Instead, you would post the Statute Number and Exemption Code on the face of the Deed in the area beneath the Legal Description. For example, if Exemption Code B3 is applicable, the proper exemption notation would be A.R.S. 11-1134 B3.

Unless exempt, carefully complete the Affidavit, sign, notarize, and submit it to the County Recorder.
