Tax Ratification Election

 
Tax Ratification Election
 
Trinity Independent School District is asking voters to approve
a Tax Rate Ratification Swap on August 26, 2017, that will yield
approximately $200,000 a year in additional state funding.
This tax rate swap will not increase taxes, it is a method for
the district to maximize our state funding by re-distributing
our designated totals. The following information is provided
for your review:

Because of the successful passage of an 11.4 million dollar
bond election on November 8, 2016, the following tax rate will
apply for school year 2017-2018:

Maintenance and Operations (day to day operations) $1.04
Interest and Sinking (bond payment) $0.25
TOTAL TAX BURDEN FOR OUR CITIZENS $1.29
 
The Board of Trustees has proposed the following rates:
Maintenance and Operations $1.17
Interest and Sinking $0.12
TOTAL TAX BURDEN FOR OUR CITIZENS $1.29

Again, this re-distribution will allow Trinity ISD to maximize
our state funding and generate approximately $200,000 extra
dollars per year in state funding at no additional cost to our
taxpayers.

For information on this special election please see the Order of
Special Election announcement located on our website or in
this weeks paper.
 
Feel free to contact Dr. John Kaufman, Superintendent of
Schools, Trinity ISD if you have any questions. He can be
