BUSHLAND -- People in Bushland are cashing in on a lower tax rate, but will end up paying more taxes.

Bushland ISD officials are lowering the tax rate by nearly a half cent.

But because the average home value is up nearly $9,000 compared to last year, people will end up paying more taxes.

The average tax increase in the district is about $107 per year.
