What is an override?

An override is a voter-approved, permanent property tax increase.  It is designed to provide a community with the ability to generate sufficient revenues to fund recurring costs that are likely to continue into the future, such as annual operating expenses for educational and municipal services.  

A “general override,” a “Proposition 2½ override,” or an “operating override” are all different names for the same thing.
