mud tax

MUD tax is a fee homeowners in certain subdivisions pay for the extra pipes and service that was needed to bring water out to their area. My Mom had a home in a MUD district and caused her nothing but headaches at tax time. Like other taxes it went up every year. The first thing we asked when we were searching for our home was if it was MUD..if they said yes, we thanked them and left..My sister in law purchased a home in a MUD district and she has regretted it ever since...
