Tax Decision Up To The Voters In Bryan

Deci­sion day is just around the cor­ner, and next Tues­day will be a big day for the peo­ple of Bryan.

On Tues­day, vot­ers will decide whether to renew Bryan’s expir­ing 1/2 per­cent income tax, which funds street and sewer main­te­nance and improve­ments and the Police and Fire Com­plex.

The Bryan Times reports that accord­ing to the Mayor, it’s noth­ing new. The city has had the tax for the past 28 years.

Since the 1/2 per­cent tax was first put in place back in 1986, it has gen­er­ated more than $25.8 mil­lion that have been put to use for var­i­ous city projects.

If approved, he said, the 1/2 per­cent will be col­lected until 2023.

Only earned income is tax­able. Pen­sions, social secu­rity and div­i­dends are not.
