Proposition 1 proposes an amendment authorizing the Texas Legislature to reduce limitation amounts on the total property taxes that could be imposed for elementary and secondary public school purposes on homeowners who are elderly or disabled. This would be done to reflect statutory reductions in the maximum compressed rate of the maintenance and operations taxes imposed on someone’s home for the previous year.
Proposition 2 proposes an increase in the amount a resident can subtract from his or her home value before public school property taxes are levied from 25,000 to $40,000.
