Four Area School Districts Seeking Property Tax Hike

November 6 is Election Day, and some voters will be faced with a proposed tax hike in four local school districts.

Abernathy, Idalou, New Deal and Shallowater are asking for about 13 cents per hundred dollar property valuation. That means that taxes on a hundred-thousand dollar house would cost an extra $130 a year in property taxes.

This proposed tax hike is in direct response to a state mandated 33 cent tax break two years ago.
