Arizona Education Fact Sheet
Only 17% of Arizona is privately owned. How much do you pay in property taxes? Through PILT (payment in lieu of taxes), the federal government pays Arizona about $1.10 per acre for our "public" lands. That $1.10 per acre is what some Democrats call "largesse." So, just remember the reason our children have less money for education than other states. We're sacrificing them for "the public good."
