Dallas County voters will consider a Tax Ratification Election (TRE) for Dallas ISD on the Nov. 6 ballot.
A TRE is a special election called by a school district’s board of trustees that asks voters to approve an increase in its maintenance and operating (M&O) tax rate. M&O taxes cover the day-to-day cost of school district operations. Since 2008, Dallas ISD has maintained an M&O tax rate of $1.04. The approval of voters is required for the district to exceed the $1.04 rate. If approved, the tax ratification election would increase the M&O tax rate to the state cap of $1.17.
