Tax Rate Notification
Public school taxes involve two figures, which divide the school district budget into two “buckets.” The first bucket is the Maintenance and Operations budget (M&O), which funds daily costs and recurring or consumable expenditures such as teacher and staff salaries, supplies, food, gas and utilities. Approximately 85 percent of the district’s M&O budget goes to teacher and staff salaries. The second bucket is the Interest and Sinking budget (I&S), also known as Debt Service, and that is used to repay debt for longer-term capital improvements approved by voters through bond elections.

For the 2021 tax year, Mansfield ISD’s I&S tax rate is $.36, and the M&O tax rate is $1.0583 for a total tax rate of $1.4183 per $100 of certified property value or a decrease in $.0281 from the prior year, pending the Voter-Approve Tax Rate Election on November 2, 2021. The table below shows the district’s tax rate for the previous five years.
