Full Notice of Public Meeting to Discuss Budget and Proposed Tax Rate
Proposed Budget for the 2018-19 School Year
Melissa Independent School District ADOPTED A TAX RATE THAT WILL RAISE MORE TAXES FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS THAN LAST YEAR’S TAX RATE.
For clarification, the verbiage used above is mandated from Section 26.05 of the Property Tax Code in the State of Texas. Please know that the proposed tax rate for Melissa ISD is still $1.67. More taxes will be raised on the Maintenance & Operations than last year, but this is due to an increase in property tax values as opposed to the tax rate.
