This questions seems to me like it belongs in the Real Estate forums, but I can't find an applicable sub-category over there, so I'm going to try it here first.
We are looking at buying a piece of property that has been "released" (for lack of a better term) from an adjoining neighborhood. Long story short, it was originally part of the development, but was then sold to a third party who had plans to sub-divide. Looks like 3rd party plans cratered and ownership reverted to bank (this is speculation on my part - the Realtor forwarded a court order that was the result of a suit by the bank ordering the adjacent community to release the property from all covenants, creeds, and restrictions etc. - basically removing it from the subdivision).
This area (and the adjacent community) are served by a Municipal Utility District (MUD) and the tax burden is not insignificant. My question is, since the land I am looking at is no longer a part of the adjacent community, if I install a water well and a septic system and am therefore not using any of the developer's utilities, would I then be exempt from the MUD tax?
Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.
