The Lindale ISD Board of Trustees adopted a total tax rate of $0.95472 during a special called school board meeting on Monday, August 21. The 2023-2024 tax rate was reduced by 21.54 cents from last year’s total tax rate. Lindale ISD has cut the total tax rate by 22.04 cents over the last four years. 


However, since this new adopted tax rate is six cents above the ‘Voter Approval Tax Rate,’ the LISD Board of Trustees is calling for a tax ratification election. If the Lindale community approves the adopted tax rate, LISD would cut taxes an additional 21.54 cents, for a total of 43.58 cents over the last five years.


If the adopted rate is approved, the six cents will generate an additional $1,400,000 in revenue that the school district will use to improve the LISD Teacher Pay Scale and to improve pay for LISD support staff.
