During the August 15 school board meeting, the Midway ISD Board of Trustees approved a 2023 tax rate of $0.9392 —an 18.5-cent decrease from the 2022 tax rate of $1.12—but it still requires voter approval. The 2023 tax rate incorporates the largest reduction in the District's history, accomplishes state-mandated tax compression, and involves voter voice in pursuit of $3.75 million of new revenue. What is happening to the tax rate? - Already happened: Down by 18.5 cents through compression - Happened this week: Down by 3 more cents through Board action - In November: Up by 3 cents if approved by voters - Overall 2023 rate: Down by 18.5 cents How is this possible? Due to early bond debt repayment, the District is poised to cut the Interest & Sinking (I&S) tax rate by three cents without compromising debt commitments. The District can then access three cents on the M&O side of the equation – used primarily for salaries – without raising the overall tax rate. The District will need voter approval to access the three pennies of M&O funds that have been offset by the three-cent decrease to the I&S tax rate through a Voter-Approval Tax Rate Election (VATRE) in November.
