Buna ISD “Tax Swap” Scenarios

  Election Passes Election Fails No Election Held
M&O $1.17 $1.04 $1.04
I&S $0.32 $0.4 $0.4
Total $1.49 $1.49 $1.49

 

Successful election generates additional $500,000 net in state matching funds for Operating Fund while still retiring the debt at the same rate as before.

Failed election generates $500,000 deficit budget for 2016-17 which will require further ‘Reduction in Force’ under financial exigency.  This will drastically impact staffing and programs.

 


BUNA ISD ‘TAX SWAP’

Buna ISD Board of Trustees Calls Election for a ‘Tax Swap’ with NO increase in the local $1.49 tax rate. 

The election is called for August 16, 2016 at the BISD administration office with early voting from August 1 through 12.  Officially called a Tax Ratification Election (TRE), the proposition is to allow the district to re-allocate the collection rate between Maintenance and Operations and Interest & Sinking.  Currently the $1.49 tax rate is split as $1.04 (M&O) and $.45 (I&S).  Passage of the proposition will allow the split to be $1.17 (M&O) and $.32 (I&S).  Therefore, there is no additional burden on the local tax payers as a result of passing the proposition.
