TUCSON, Ariz. -- Thousands of Pima County homeowners will see increases of $100,000 or more in the tax value of their homes in their 2008 valuation notices, officials said.

The notices being mailed this week are based on home sales that occurred in 2005 and 2006, at the height of the hot housing market.

The tax rates that are adopted this summer will be applied to these values in 2008. Taxes paid this year will be based on last year's values.

Assessor Bill Staples was unable to provide an overall average increase, but he said most homeowners will see increases between 20 percent and 25 percent.
