Property Tax Relief Task Force (PTRTF)

LEND strongly opposes a Property Tax Freeze.

  • Property taxes are the most reliable and predictable source of revenue for our school districts.

  • School district revenue must keep up with the rate of inflation as it relates to cost of operations; goods, services, payroll, benefits, etc.

  • An immediate effective date does not allow school districts adequate time to prepare.  School districts are in the midst of multi-year contracts that stipulate increases aligned with the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

  • The Evidence Based Funding formula just passed and has yet to be implemented.
