Perrin-Whitt CISD gives proposed tax rate
PERRIN – Perrin-Whitt Consolidated Independent School District taxpayers could see a slight decline in their tax rate for the next tax year.
During its July 20 meeting, Superintendent Cliff Gilmore announced the tax rate would drop to $1.1734 per $100 valuation. The Maintenance and Operation (M&O) rate dropped from $0.9664 to $0.9634 cents. The Interest and Sinking (I&S) rate remained at $0.2100.
A hearing on the proposed tax rate and budget is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 30, after which the board is expected to vote on both. The regular board meeting is also set for that time to ensure all the budget amendments for the 20-21 year are in. The new budget year begins Oct. 1.
The district had $21 million more valuation this year than last year, Gilmore said.
“One of the three counties the district draws its valuation from, Parker, still had not submitted its certified valuations,” he said.
