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.
Here's a look at a sample ballot:
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?
