How is the general obligation bond rate calculated?

The tax rates for voter approved debt are computed yearly. Several components are used to make this calculation. Generally, the two primary factors are the amount of money needed for the annual repayment to the bondholders and the assessed value in the district for the tax year. In addition, other components are used, such as the prior year balance and revenue from other sources.
