Carefree

Why you'd want to live in Carefree

Carefree does not assess a town specific real estate tax. Annual real estate taxes in Carefree are approximately half of what would be charged for an identical residence in cities and towns which have town specific real estate taxes as an add-on to the annual real estate taxes assessed by Maricopa County. For a median priced home in Carefree with a full cash value of $535,000, the incremental annual tax cost for an identical home in Scottsdale would be $3,100, and $2,900 in Phoenix. This considerable annual tax savings in Carefree is accomplished while the Town funds full fire and police coverage for our citizens and with our children enjoy award winning public schools funded through Maricopa County taxes. School-aged children who live in Carefree typically attend public, charter or private schools within the Cave Creek Unified School District (CCUSD). The main campus is just south of Carefree Highway at 56th Street. - Cave Creek Unified School District - Cave Creek Montessori - Dynamite Montessori - Foothills Academy Activities - 3.5 acre Carefree Desert Gardens in downtown Carefree with rare specimen plants and cacti open 365 days - Sunday Concerts in the Spring within the Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion - Numerous golf courses and hiking/biking trails throughout the area - Thunderbird Artists Fine Art Fairs in downtown Carefree 3 times a year - Farmers Market every Friday morning under the iconic Sundial - Kiwanis Splash Park within the Gardens, and Gila Monster Slide and shaded Playground - Carefree Christmas Festival and Enchanted Pumpkin Garden Exhibits via Multiple Sources
