TISD Approves Tax Rate, School Budget, Parking Lease

T.I.S.D. tax payers can expect to pay less for their property taxes.

Tonight (8/29), the T.I.S.D. school board approved the 2006-2007 school budget, additional parking lease, and tax rate.  

Last year's property tax rate was $1.54/$100 valuation of your home. This year's tax rate for the 2006-2007 school year will be $1.48 for that same home, a decrease of about 5 cents.  

T.I.S.D. spokeswoman says the lower tax rate is based on money to pay for new schools, and operating the school system.
