Texas Border Business

Mission, Texas- When property owners in Mission Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) receive their tax bills this fall, they will see a reduction in the tax rate for the second year in a row. The Board of Trustees adopted a property tax rate that is 4 cents lower than the previous year. 

“The Board of Trustees has been very supportive of our efforts to not just maximize state funding for the district, but to also work many efficiencies into our operations,” explained Dr. Carol G. Perez, superintendent. “This is enabling us to improve upon our services to students, while minimizing the impact on our taxpayers.” 

The tax rate adopted for this fiscal year is $1.1993 per $100 of property valuation. For a home valued at $100,000, that would be an annual savings to the owner of approximately $40 over the previous year. 

In 2019, the Board of Trustees approved a 10-cent cut in the district’s tax rate. 

Dr. Perez said the district has been focused on not just improving upon services to students in the process of reducing the tax rates, but also improving on district salaries. She said that over the course of the last two years, the district has been able to bring almost all positions to market value, or above. She said this plays an important role in not just attracting the best to serve district students, but to also keep the district’s staff attrition rate down.
