Impact of Proposition One on MISD Taxpayers

Posted: November 6, 2015

On November 3 Texas voters approved a constitutional amendment (Proposition One) that will increase the state mandated homestead exemption from $15,000 to $25,000 effective January 2016. Considering the additional $10,000 state exemption provided by Proposition One, this means that a local resident whose home is valued at $100,000 would save approximately $154 in taxes based on the MISD $1.54 tax rate. Midlothian ISD is also one of only a few districts in the state that offers an additional 10 percent optional local homestead exemption providing further savings to taxpayers.
