Here’s What You Need To Know
Two proposed constitutional amendments will be up for a vote on Saturday, May 7, 2022.
Below is the language for the proposed amendments as they will appear on the ballot and my position on each amendment.
“The constitutional amendment authorizing the legislature to provide for the reduction of the amount of a limitation on the total amount of ad valorem taxes that may be imposed for general elementary and secondary public school purposes on the residence homestead of a person who is elderly or disabled to reflect any statutory reduction from the preceding tax year in the maximum compressed rate of the maintenance and operations taxes imposed for those purposes on the homestead.”
Support – Passage of this proposition would extend a maintenance and operations (M&O) tax rate compression, found in the school finance reform bill (HB 3, 86th Session) to homeowners who are disabled or over 65 on their school district property tax bill. Any lost local revenue that results from the passage of this proposition will be replaced by the state. This will provide tax relief for our senior citizens and/or Texans who are disabled. While eligible homeowners may only realize a small reduction in their taxes, the reduction will still be beneficial.
“The constitutional amendment increasing the amount of the residence homestead exemption from ad valorem taxation for public school purposes from $25,000 to $40,000.”
Support – Passage of this proposition would increase Texans’ homestead exemption from property taxes for public school purposes from $25,000 to $40,000. This is an important first step for many hard-working Texas homeowners who are not the primary beneficiaries of tax rate compression. If adopted, this property tax relief will take place retroactively as of January 1, 2022. Any lost local revenue that results from the passage of this proposition will be replaced by the state. This is estimated to save homeowners $175 a year going forward.
