This is NOT a new tax request... It is a renewal!
The Liberty Union-Thurston Local Schools District currently receives revenue through a one and three-quarter (1.75%) percent income tax. The one and three-quarter percent total comes from two separate tax issues. In 1990, voters approved a one and one-quarter percent (1.25%) “continuing” school income tax. In 2005, voters approved an additional half-percent (0.50%) school income tax, for a five-year period. That half-percent school income tax was renewed by voters in 2010, again, for a five-year period. Voter approval of the half-percent (0.50%) school income tax renewal on May 6th will keep tax rates the same as they have been since 2005.
