How does a CFD special tax work?
Special taxes for a CFD are typically levied annually and are placed on the property tax bill issued by the County. The special taxes for CFDs created to finance authorized public facilities (infrastructure such as roads, sidewalks, water and sewer lines, police and fire stations, etc.) are typically used to pay back principal and interest on bonds that were issued for that particular CFD. Special Taxes for a CFD created to finance authorized public services are levied to pay for the service provided (such as lighting, landscaping, and maintenance of parks and trails, etc.).
