NEW KNOXVILLE — New Knoxville Board of Education members unanimously voted in a special meeting Monday night to move forward with the first steps to continue a 1 percent, five-year income tax levy passed in 2009.
While the levy wouldn’t change what the voters were currently paying, the revenue accounts for approximately $461,000 — an estimated 11 percent of the total school general fund. While the current income tax doesn’t run out until the end of 2014, board members thought it best to consider getting it on the ballot as soon as possible.
