Kevin Russell started this petition to Bluff Dale Independent School District

Property Taxes have risen every year for at least the last 8 years. At the current rate of Tax increases the average person in the Bluff Dale ISD will see an $830 increase over the next five years. The average age of Residents in Bluff Dale is 7 years older than the National average, meaning we have a higher average of Residents on Fixed income. 

The Appraisal district is limited to a 10% Appraisal increase on "Homesteaded" Properties.

A 10% "Local Option" would essentially freeze Appraisals for Homesteaders. Additional School District revenue would be acheived through Annual New Construction. Last year's New Construction Taxable Value was around 9 million Dollars.

We Request that the Bluff Dale ISD School Board adopt a 10% "Local Option" no later than June 30, 2021 to go into effect with the New Budget.
