Klein ISD Board Cuts Tax Rate by $0.20, Historic 31-Year Low
Klein, TX - The Klein ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to set a new tax rate of $1.03 per $100 valuation during their meeting on October 2, 2023. This rate is the district's lowest since 1992, marking a 31-year low and one of the largest one-year cuts in Klein ISD history.
The Board initially proposed this lowered rate at their September 11, 2023, meeting. The new tax rate reflects a significant decrease from last year's rate of $1.23 per $100 valuation.
"We are pleased to offer this tax relief while upholding the high standard of education for which Klein ISD is recognized," Klein ISD Board President Rob Ellis said. "The Board, in collaboration with district leadership, has worked diligently to align our budgetary practices with our core values of educational excellence and financial integrity."
The tax rate reduction directly benefits taxpayers while ensuring that the educational quality and robust programs that Klein ISD is known for remain uncompromised.
