I am the president of a tax district that maintains a private road that we live on. Forming a tax district was the only way to insure payment for maintenance. With an "association" you can't "force" everyone to join. My mother-in-law lives on a private road association and those who live on the first half know they don't have to pay for plowing, etc. because the ones at the end have to have it plowed to get out. Anyone new who moves in also can't be forced to join. I've been through all this. A state approved tax district can put tax leins on those who don't pay (and we have many times) so we eventually always get our money by law. Tax is based on property value. My back yard borders a road that I get no use from but am forced to pay taxes to their tax district. That's how it works.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI know that there are a lot more than weather differences in CT & TX, but here, if tax $ are paying road maintenance it is NOT a private road.[u:0f9c2c553a][/u:0f9c2c553a]

By your reasoning a driveway shared by 2 or more households is no longer a private road? The taxes we collect come only from the homes that border the road not the state aka genreal public. It is NOT owned or maintained by the state and it is NOT open to the public, aka private. We could put a locked gate across it if we voted so. BTW, I'm not only the president and treasurer of the tax district I'm also a customer (I mean tax payer).

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeNothing to do with my reasoning, just noting the different definitions here & there of private road. Private means that I own the road and no tax money will go to maintain it. Here, tax money goes to maintain only public roads, open to the public. I own two of them and have sold easements for ingress/egress & no other use or construction is allowed. the deed is mine. With my permission, the easement holders may add gravel only. The world isn't uniform.

thanks for all the replies.i may have left out some important info.. that being that all of the property owners are in agreement on paying for the maintenance of the road.it is what each one's fair share would be in doing so. so it seems bjb-jms may have the breakdown of how it should be done. the person at the end of the road realizes he uses more than the others. there seems to no bickering over the matter. have a good nite

We own a piece of vacant land on a private road. Every few years we get a notice of wanting to do some improvments and asking everyone to kick in X number os dollars. We always pay even though we don't drive the road and there is no house on it. There is always someone who will not pay. I think everyone pays the same.
