In the Flagler County side of Plantation Bay there is a lot of new construction going on and a lot of the newer resale homes are available there. This appeals too many buyers especially when they see the cheaper taxes but remember the Flagler County side of Plantation Bay carries the Tomoka CDD. CDD refers to Community Development District and is easiest to be described as a bond the developer has taken with the county, which is passed on to buyers. This CDD will be found on your tax bill and will be wrapped into one. So if you are looking to buy a home with financing the CDD will be part of your tax bill payment. Don’t let this CDD scare you though. For most price ranges in Plantation Bay you will find, even with the CDD, the taxes to be lower.
