Sept. 8 Extra Charge for GROUPS FOOD FARE 123 East Hwy. 31 MALAKOFF ASSOCIATION FOR FAIR TAXES 4 Indications are that some of the mistakes made, and still being made, by our School Officials may be jeopardizing the school programs our school children are entitled to. The position of most taxpayers is certainly in jeopardy. It appears that the following acts have been committed, or caused to be committed, by our Malakoff School Board; The Tax Assessor-Collector, Gary Lewis; Our School Administrator, Jack Murray; The Imported "TAX APPRAISAL EXPERT", Richard Cope, and our "Rubber Stamp" Equalization Board: 1. The Tax Expert was hired prior to January 1, 1975 for s34,000.00 to furnish market values of ALL Taxable Property in the District. 2. The School Superintendent, after consultation with Gary Lewis and the Tax Expert, Furnished the Education Commissioner in Austin with a fictitious estimated appraisal of our property values of 95,000,000.00. Our values last year were less than 54,000,000.00. 3. As a result of this erroneous estimate, our MALAKOFF SCHOOL is penalized many thousands of dollars in the form of State Aid. This aid will be given to schools who are not as rich as we are. Therefore, OUR CHILDREN will be;deprived of some of the school programs they are entitled to and which we believe t;should have. 4. The School Board, in conjunction with others, came up with the approximately =95,000,000.00 "Locked.In Values Values" previously furnished the Texas Education Commissioner. .... ' 5. The School Board set a tax rate of 1  per qO0 valuation before arriving at a budget (Cart Before The Horse Again). 6. The School Board later approved a budgeL 7. The School Board was advised by legal advisers to re-set the rate. 8. The School Board at considerable expense had tax notices prepared and mailed approximately thirty days before normal mailing date. ,. 9. The School Board took the following action on the date of many of the tax notice mailings: reduced the appraised values 42.858% across the Board and raised the tax value from 40% to 70% of appraised value for tax purposes. This will produce the same amount of revenue and cost the Taxpayer the same amount of money as before the action. 10. Results-confusion and lack of money under the,circumstances to provide our school children with the school programs they are entitled to and which we are paying for. To our Taxpayers, we say the lawsuit is on with greater vigor and determination than ever. We believe very strongly that our only hopes to recover part of the loss in revenue our school children and we have suffered is, first of all, for the District Court to set aside the entire tax farce and dilemma we are in. Then it is possible the Appeal Board in Austin may relieve us and our school childre, of part of the unjustified and unfair burden imposed upon this School District as a result of a mass of errors. We do not believe our tax values are equalized and will continue our fight until such time as they are equalized. The action on Saturday referred to inilm 9 above did not change our tax status nor the staus of our lawsuit in any shape, form or fashion. It is gratifying that so many hundreds of people have joined in our fight for justice. letter and your check at once to: FAIR TAX ASSOCIATION P. O.
