The Interest and Sinking (I&S) tax rate was increased $0.27 from $0.11 to $0.38 after the passage of the 2023 bond. The rate will support the Debt Service Fund budget also adopted in June of 2023 and includes the debt associated with the 2023 Bond and the refinancing bonds of 2014 and 2015. 

The total taxable value of all properties rose by $247,362,639 compared to the previous year, increasing from $1,397,363,213 to $1,644,725,852, as indicated by data from the Smith County Appraisal District.
