The HISD Board of Education adopted a tax rate of $1.1867 per $100 of taxable value for tax year 2013 during its regular monthly meeting on October 10, 2013.
This rate includes a “maintenance and operations” component of $1.0267 and a “debt-service” component of 16 cents.
The following language is published pursuant to Section 26.05 of the Texas Property Tax Code:
HOUSTON INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT ADOPTED A TAX RATE THAT WILL RAISE MORE TAXES FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS THAN LAST YEAR'S TAX RATE; and THE TAX RATE WILL EFFECTIVELY BE RAISED BY 2.15 PERCENT AND WILL RAISE TAXES FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS ON A $100,000 HOME BY APPROXIMATELY $20.00.
The increased amount in taxes does not take into consideration an increase in the appraised value of a home, only the increase in taxes resulting from the change in the tax rate assuming the taxable value stayed the same from 2012 to 2013.
