Questions remain after documents reveal Mayor Sam Katz listed his primary residence as being in Arizona.

Records from the Maricopa County Assessor’s Office list his Scottsdale mansion as his primary residence.

Katz came under fire in 2012 when it was revealed he bought the house in Scottsdale, Ariz. for more than $1 million cash from the sister of a Shindleman family member, the family that runs the development company Shindico. The developer has been at the centre of many of the controversies surrounding the city’s questionable real estate deals, including the fire hall swap.

“I purchased a home in Arizona, I paid fair market value ... that’s basically the gist of it. There’s nothing really more to say,” said Katz in 2012.
