Ballot Language

The 86th Legislative session (2019) requires the language "this is a tax rate increase" on all school bonds. Voters will see "this is a property tax increase" on their ballots.

Despite this deceptive language, the passaging of the bond will not result in an increase in the property tax rate. Your tax bill may be higher due to an increase in your property value, not an increase in the school district tax rate. Property appraisals are set by the county appraisal district, and home values have risen across our region. 

There is no tax rate increase if voters approve both propositions.
