Pima County taxpayers will soon pay a little more to Pima Community College.

The school’s Board of Governors voted 4 to 1 Wednesday to approve a 2-percent increase to PCC’s primary property tax rate.

The change will add $3.7 million to the college’s coffers next school year, bringing its total income from property taxes to $96.3 million.

A taxpayer with a home valued at $100,000 will pay $127.46 a year to PCC, a few dollars more than the current $125.

The school’s new budget also incorporates a 4.4 percent increase in most tuition rates. The changes take effect in the 2013-14 budget year, which starts July 1.

Property taxes are the largest source of funding for PCC, with tuition the second-largest.
