Our attorneys have extensive experience representing Texas public school districts in connection with Texas Economic Development Act Agreements under Chapter 313 of the Texas Tax Code, totaling tens of billions of dollars. These agreements have provided substantial benefits to our clients by adding to the local tax base, providing payments in lieu of taxation to support school operations, and in some cases, developing strategic partnerships between industry and the local school districts. We work as advocates for the school district, rather than disinterested third parties, to achieve the best outcome for our school district clients. Our depth of knowledge in the areas of school finance and public finance allows us to provide seamless services in this area. We strive to educate the local school board so that the terms of these agreements are clearly understood. For more information on Chapter 313, click here.
