Property Values and Tax Rates
The following spreadsheets provide comptroller tax information, including property tax rates by district for the specified tax years. A school district's property tax rate is made up of a maintenance and operations (M&O) tax rate and, if applicable, an interest and sinking fund (I&S) tax rate. The M&O tax rate provides funds for maintenance and operations, and the I&S tax rate provides funds for payments on the debt that finances a district's facilities. The calculation of state funding for school districts is tied to tax effort; thus tax rates are an essential component of the state's school finance formulas.
