Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees adopts tax rate almost 19 cents lower than last year

Homeowners in Spring Branch ISD will see a $0.1889 reduction in their district tax rate from last year. At their Sept. 26 regular meeting, Trustees voted unanimously (7-0) to reduce the tax rate for the 2023-2024 fiscal year from $1.2688 to $1.0789 per $100 of assessed taxable valuation. 

The actual impact on a local resident’s tax statement is dependent on the taxable value of a specific property as set by the Harris County Appraisal District.

Among area school districts, SBISD remains one of the few in Harris County to offer every tax break allowed by law, including the local optional 20 percent homestead exemption.

Based on the estimated tax on a $500,000 home, SBISD homeowners have the third lowest tax burden in the region – less than Katy, Spring, Fort Bend or many other similar suburban ISDs.

In addition, the school tax levy (payment) remains frozen for our taxpayers with the over-65 or disabled persons exemptions. These frozen levies will be lowered in response to SB 12 passed in 2021, and also for SB 2 passed in 2023 (assuming voter passage of Texas Constitutional amendments in November 2023).
