State-shared revenues are taxes already levied and collected by the State. A percentage of these taxes are allocated back to the local governments on a population basis. The state taxes are currently paid to Pinal County for the San Tan Valley population rather than a San Tan Valley municipality. If our community incorporates, the population’s share of state-shared revenues come directly to San Tan Valley for allocation and use by the locally elected council. Other incorporating municipalities have found their state-shared revenues generally cover the basic services of a newly incorporated municipality.
