In regards to Tampa Palms and condominiums there are two fees. The Homeowners association fee for Tampa Palms is for the Master Plan Community which everyone living within Tampa Palms Subdivision must pay for the up keep and beautification of the Master Plan Community and extra ammenities if available like swimming pools, tennis courts, playgrounds, etc. The Condominium fee is your unit and property maintenance fee is for the actual condominium and covers exterior insurance, maintenance, water sewer trash, security to the complex, etc. Now Tampa Palms is a CDD community. Community Development Disctricts have an extra tax that is associated with the infrastructure of the community, roads, underground, sidewalks, lighting, schools, etc. If you would like to contact me I can get you better information which is more indepth about all the communities in the Tampa Bay area whether Pinellas, Pasco or Hillsborough County.
