Tax Rate Notification
Public school taxes involve two figures, which divide the school district's budget into two “buckets.” The first bucket is the Maintenance and Operations budget (M&O), which funds daily costs and recurring or consumable expenditures such as teacher and staff salaries, supplies, food, gas and utilities. Approximately 85 percent of the district’s M&O budget goes to teacher and staff salaries. The second bucket is the Interest and Sinking budget (I&S), also known as Debt Service, and that is used to repay debt for longer-term capital improvements approved by voters through bond elections.
For the 2021 tax year, Pleasant Grove ISD’s I&S tax rate is $.365, and the M&O tax rate is $0.9965 for a total tax rate of $1.3615 per $100 of certified property value or a decrease in $.0063 from the prior year. The table below shows the district’s tax rate for the previous five years.
