No, this is not a tax, only the property owners within the benefit area pay for the improvement through a special assessment.

A Municipal Service Benefit Unit (MSBU) is a mechanism for property owners within unincorporated areas of the County to receive services for which they currently do not have. Examples of these are Water, Sewer, Re-use Lines and Paved Roads.
All costs are paid by all the affected property owners within the affected benefit area.
Each project is created individually; therefore a specific cost cannot be set, however an estimate will be provided.
Payment of the MSBU special assessment charge can be made in two different ways. The special assessment charge can be paid in full at the beginning of the assessment, or it can be combined with the annual property tax bill over 10 years.
