On Monday, Sept. 12, 2022, the Board of Trustees approved a tax rate of $1.4429 per $100 of assessed valuation, $0.0517 lower than last year's property tax rate and the lowest the school district's rate has been since 2008. Burleson ISD does not set the appraised value of homes. The appraisal districts in the homeowner's residing county are responsible. Consequently, some property owners may see their school district tax bills rise if the assessed values of their property increase.
