Charles "Hos" Hoskins

The Maricopa County Treasurer is responsible for collecting all real and personal property taxes for over 1500 tax districts that include state, county, incorporated cities and towns, schools, community colleges, and special districts; and then distributing those funds to those tax districts. With nearly 40 years’ experience in the Arizona property system, Charles "Hos" Hoskins is ideally suited to accomplish these duties.

Like many Arizonans, Hoskins first came to the state as a young fighter pilot at Luke Air Force Base in 1957. After flying 274 combat missions in Vietnam and being awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, "Hos" retired from the Air Force and he and his wife made their home in Arizona in 1975.

He began his new career working for the Arizona Board of Tax Appeals - first as an appraiser and then as the Clerk of the Board. Ten years later he joined the Department of Revenue as Assistant Director of the Property Valuation and Equalization Division. Later he became the Director of the entire department.

In 1989 "Hos" left government service and became a property tax consultant with a national firm serving several hundred clients throughout the Southwest. "Hos" retired in 1995 and was later appointed to serve on the State Board of Equalization (BOE) by then County Supervisor (and later governor), Jan Brewer.

The BOE is an agency charged with hearing and deciding appeals of property valuations and classifications. As a member of that board he heard more than five-thousand appeals.

The County Treasurer is an elected position with a four-year term. Hoskins was re-elected to third term in November 2012. His term expires January 1, 2017.

He has a BS degree from Arizona State University and taught property tax classes at a private real estate school. He has written several articles on the Arizona property tax system.

"Hos" has been married to Eleanor for over 50 years. They have a son, daughter, and two grandsons.
