ABOUT the District

Adopted 2020 Tax Rate

Arlington Independent School District adopted a tax rate that will raise more taxes for maintenance and operations than last year's tax rate. The tax rate will be effectively raised by 12.42 percent and will raise taxes for maintenance and operations on a $100,000 home by approximately $116.

Note: the 2020-2021 tax rate adopted by the board of trustees exceeds the district’s voter approval tax rate and, according to Texas statute, automatically triggers a voter approval tax rate election (VATRE).

This election will be held on November 3, 2020.
