NEW STATE LAW REQUIREMENT

"Property Tax Increase" Language on Ballots

In accordance with the new state law, effective September 2019, all ballot propositions must include the following statement: THIS IS A PROPERTY TAX INCREASE regardless of no tax rate increase. Voters will see this language on both propositions; however, the Sinton ISD tax rate will not increase as a result of the 2020 bond election. Based upon the current taxable values of the district and projected growth, it is expected that the I&S rate will remain at $0.45 following the election. 

Property Tax Rate vs. District Tax Rate

Your property taxes are locally assessed taxes determined by numerous taxing units and the county appraisal district. 

Various local taxing units (LTU)*, including the school district, establish individual budgets and tax rates which, combined with the appraised value of your home, make up your overall property tax rate amount. 

Your home appraisal value typically changes yearly and is set by the San Patricio County Appraisal District. Sinton ISD has no authority on your home appraisal value and cannot raise or lower your appraised value. 

*Local taxing units include city, county, school and special services such as community college, hospital and road.

Again, this additional language is a new state law requirement. The district's school tax rate will not be increasing. Once bonds are approved, they are viable for the next ten years and can be sold in increments. We will only sell bonds as they are needed in the amount needed. Have further questions?
