Sorry to be the opposite of the others, but yes, we have virtually the same thing here, we just call them Utility Districts. Most are called Municipal Utility Districts (MUD), or Water Control & Improvement Districts (WCID), and sometimes they are called Special Utility Districts (SUD). They can perform much the same function, paying for infrastructure, water supply, sewer, flood control, etc.
Every property has a property ID, and you can easily find the different taxing authorities, and whether or not a particular property has a Utility District associated with it. Easy to find if you know what you are looking for. But don't just look at taxes, Homeowner Associations are quite common and they have fees, sometimes more than one.
If you need any more help getting answers, give me a call, or write me an email.
