Tax Rate Swap & Drop

  • Keller ISD is exploring an upcoming plan to generate additional revenue for the District while also lowering taxpayers' overall tax rate – it's a Tax Rate Swap & Drop. 

    Tax Rate Swap & Drop logo Texas school districts tax rates are broken up into two separate rates – an Interest and Sinking (I&S) rate that funds the payment of debt from bonds that are used to build and maintain school buildings, and Maintenance and Operations (M&O) rate that funds everything else including programming, teacher salaries, and utilities. The M&O rate is currently capped at $1.04 per $100 property valuation, but can be raised to $1.17 with the community's approval. This is done through a Tax Ratification Election. 

    If the community passes a Tax Ratification Election, Keller ISD could raise the M&O rate by $0.13, but would also be in position to lower the I&S rate by $0.14 due to higher valuations and fiscally responsible refinancing over the years. This would lower the overall tax rate, while providing Keller ISD with $19 million in additional net operating revenue

    That's more money for your schools while lowering your overall tax rate. It's a Tax Rate Swap & Drop!
