Y 0UR EMERGENCY SERVICE DISTRICT #2 & CASSIE VFD
NEEDS YOUR YES VOTE!
On November 3, 2020 voters in Precinct 7 that live in the Cassie Fire District will be asked to vote “ YES” for a proposition to secure the UUNCLAIMED SALES TAX for the Emergency Service
District #2 and Cassie Fire. When approved, the funds will be used to defray the ever-increasing high expense associated with providing fire, rescue and EMS protection to all
residents in the communities we serve.
Emergency Service District #2 and Cassie Fire will place a sales tax proposition on the ballot that will ask our voters to approve a 2% tax on certain purchases in the Cassie Fire District. “This proposition will not increase taxes to our voters, but will authorize through voting, the reallocation of existing tax dollars available.”
Today the maximum Sales Tax allowed in State of Texas is 8.25% on certain purchases. Texas collects 6.25% on those purchases. By law, the remaining 2% is available to eligible local jurisdictions such as Emergency Service Districts (ESD’s).
Any ESD or State approved jurisdiction may collect up to 2% of the unclaimed Sales Tax for each district, as long as, the voters approve through an election.
You may ask where do these unclaimed sales tax dollars go today. If there are no approved local jurisdictions that claim these funds through a voter election, then all unclaimed sales tax dollars will automatically revert to the Texas state treasury, until claimed.
Again, we ask for your “ YES” vote on November 3, 2020 to keep our sales tax dollars in the Emergency Service District #2 and Cassie Fire working to protect the safety and well being to our people and communities.
