Thought I'd chime in , I work with the city of Queen Creek and get asked this question ALOT !
Even though your mail and such say you live in Queen Creek you really don't .
People whole live in Pinal County but have the name Queen Creek,, don't really live in the town of Queen Creek .
The U.S. post office gave you a town to better their postal service.
You live on Pinal County land (an unincorporated part of the county)
All your taxes go to Pinal County (not the town of Queen Creek)
So you do not pay taxes to help our library or fire or police !!
Your taxes do not support Maricopa county
Your taxes support Pinal county
Your taxes pay for Pinal County library , fire , police , etc ..
This is why you pay a fee to use Maricopa County facilities.
You can go to the Apache Junction library or Coolige library or Casa Grande library and not pay a fee because they are based in Pinal County .
