Special Tax Districts Information

About Special Tax Districts

A special district is an independent unit of local government organized to perform a single governmental function or a restricted number of related functions. Special districts usually have the power to incur debt and levy taxes; however, certain types of special districts are entirely dependent upon enterprise earnings and cannot impose taxes. Examples of special districts are water and flood control districts, and transit authorities, port authorities, and electric power authorities.

Questions about tax payments in special districts should be addressed to the Treasurer's Office.
