What is a TRE?
A district that adopts a tax rate above its maximum M & O tax rate must hold a Tax Ratification Election (TRE) to provide voters the ability to ratify the higher rate. If a majority of the votes are cast in favor of the proposition, the tax rate for the current year is adopted by the Board. If the proposition is not approved, then the Board may not adopt a tax rate for the current year that exceeds the maximum rate.
