Federal Impact Aid Forms
CMCSS will send out the Impact Aid forms to students on October 17th, 2016.
Federal Impact Aid is designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt Federal property (such as Fort Campbell, government buildings, TVA steam plants, subsidized housing, etc.). Its' intent is to help offset the lost property taxes that would have been collected if businesses or privately owned residences were located there instead. Your support in returning these forms is appreciated.
