Lufkin Independent School District's Tax Rate To Stay The Same

The tax rate for the Lufkin Independent School District will not be going up.

Superintendent Roy Knight says that the board is looking to keep the proposed tax rate the same, and he feels that it will not change for at least a couple of years.

He also says the only thing that will change is the amount you pay if your property was appraised for a higher amount.

According to Knight, all the money goes to the state right now because of the way the system has been set up.
