TO THE SUPERINTENDENT ADDRESSED:

Subject: 2006-07 Total Tax Collections

Enclosed is the annual Tax Collection Certification form to be used for reporting the amount of taxes that have been collected to date and any additional taxes estimated to be collected through the end of the district fiscal year.

Because of the potential for districts to be on an alternate fiscal calendar, the instructions listed below should be followed based on the situation for your specific district:

If…

then…

the school district fiscal year began September 1, 2006 and will end August 31, 2007 (the traditional fiscal year),

report amounts for the period September 1, 2006 through August 31, 2007 as indicated on the form.

the school district fiscal year began July 1, 2006 and will end June 30, 2007 (alternate year, converted in 2005-06 or earlier),

report amounts for the period July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2007 as indicated on the form.

the school district fiscal year began September 1, 2006 but will end June 30, 2007 (alternate year, converting in 2006-07),

report amounts for the period September 1, 2006 through August 31, 2007 (the traditional year basis).

This year we are asking about the value of your property that is subject to frozen levies in accordance with Section 11.26, Tax Code, and the amount of taxes collected on those properties for the 2005-06 and 2006-07 school years.  We are also asking for your estimates of these amounts for the 2007-08 school year.  In addition, we are asking you to provide information about taxes paid to a Tax Increment Zone under Chapter 311, Tax Code in 2005-06 and 2006-07 as well as the estimated payments for 2007-08. 

We hope to use this data to assist us in the implementation of legislation that was authorized during both the 80th Legislature, Regular Session, that just ended and during the 79th Legislature, Third Called Session that occurred in the spring of 2006.  In order to better estimate the amount of settle-up for the 2006-07 school year, we are requesting that this form be completed and returned to us in a timely manner.  Please return the completed form to the Division of State Funding no later than July 2, 2007.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Division of State Funding at (512) 463-9238.

Sincerely,

Liz Caskey, Director  
State Funding
