2014 Adopted Tax Rates for Groom ISD
(Per $100 of Assessed Valuation)
Maintenance and Operations Rate $1.105 compared with $1.17 in 2013 -- DOWN 5.56%
Interest & Sinking Fund Rate $0.187 compared with $0.216 in 2013 -- DOWN 13.43%
Total Rate for the District: $1.292 compared with $1.386 in 2013 -- DOWN 6.78%
DUE TO INCREASING VALUES WITHIN THE DISTRICT, this Tax Rate will raise more revenue for Maintenance and Operations than last years tax rate. The Tax Rate will EFFECTIVELY be raised by 3.73% and will raise taxes for Maintenance and Operations on a $100,000 home by approximately $40.00.
The above statement can be misleading to taxpayers - Due to the 6.78% reduction in our tax rate for 2014, most taxpayers in the district will see a small reduction in their 2014 school taxes unless they had an increase in their appraised values for 2014. The rise in property values in the district for 2014 is mostly attributed to new construction and development within the district, not to changes in local appraised values.
