Hi Pilates, Ron is correct. Property taxes mainly go towards schools, but all utilities and services for your home are billed separately. Here's a link to the local utility companies in the Santa Clarita/Canyon Country area: http://www.scvmall.com/moving/utilities.htm

I'm in California, so I'm not exactly sure how it’s done in FL; however, I have to believe the process of investigation for determining the construction of the tax bill for an individual property is similar as covered below:

"Estimating Property Taxes in CA"

If any of the items you are asking about are part of the tax bill you will find them if you follow the process detailed in the blog post.

Property Taxes cover property taxes and maybe schools; sometimes there is an add-on to the tax for a special school bond.
The SERVICE for Water/Trash/Sewer is a separate bill. Gas is a spearate bill.

Good luck and may God bless
