Hunter's Green in New Tampa does NOT encumber the homeowners with extra CDD taxes along with Cross Creek.
Hope this helps.

These assessments and taxes are in addition to county and other local governmental taxes and assessments and are included with your tax bill each year. The operating and maintenance (O&M) portion is assessed for maintenance for common improvements within your community that the CDD provides. The services vary depending on which community you live in. For example, it may cover landscaping, street lights, guard facilities, roving patrol, storm water management, etc., or it may only include a few of the services.
Hope this helps,

Your property taxes and CDD fees are separate items and run with the land. These are costs that will be part of your monthly expense. As long as you own your home your monthly expense will include these costs. Your decision to purchase a Florida home will bring you many days of personal enjoyment.
The purchase of a property is a financial decision. Any financial decision would be best served by asking your CPA regarding a strategic move such as you are considering. They would be most familiar with your financial portfolio and provide you with the most current tax law information. If your CPA is out of state, they most likely have a network of associaties a could refer you to a Florida CPA for additional advise.
I'm including a link to the Better Business Bureau where you can search for an accountant if you do not already have one, http://www.bbb.org!

Community Development District ~ That is the term for a planned community. It is the cost of building out the infrastructure...water, sewer, roads. It is in the tax bill. It will be there for a definate term and then go away. For your area, I suggest that you call the property appraiser office. RE property taxes are deductable and it is part of your real estate tax.
