See below for a list of the local city and school district debt loads, plus Ellis County government debt and Navarro College’s debt.

Note though Ellis County taxpayers don’t pay property taxes to Navarro College, the school district based in Corsicana has three campuses in Ellis County that Navarro County taxpayers fund.
