SUBJECT: 2009 Financial Data for the Quality Basic Education Act (QBE-103)
The Department of Revenue is required to compile information concerning amount of revenues
distributed to your local school system during the fiscal year July 1, 2008 - June 30, 2009 for maintenance
and operations. This data is used to determine the allotment of state funds to school systems under the
Quality Basic Education Act.
Please complete the enclosed form and return to this office, no later than September 1, 2009 as
this information will affect your school's funding. Do not include debt service funds / bonds or
any revenue distributed to your school by the County Tax Commissioner, County Board of
Commissioners, or Clerk of Superior Court.
There are four (4) parts of the form that require completion:
PART 1 Tax Revenue - Show the tax revenue source and amount distributed to the school
system for maintenance and operations.
PART 2 Non Tax Revenue - Show an explanation of any non-tax revenue source and the amount
actually distributed to the school system.
PART 3 Note for Additional Completion - Item 2 of Part 3 refers to all city tax collections, not just
the portion distributed to the school. Item 3 refers to all revenue not distributed to the
school and its source.
PART 4 Exemptions - Complete this section accurately as information submitted will affect the
amount of state funds given to your school system(s).
