The assessments are due on January 1st of each year. Every owner has an obligation to pay the annual assessment. If you do not receive a statement, you must contact C.I.A. Services immediately to confirm your balance and ensure it is paid on time. You may pay on-line, and payment arrangements are available by contacting C.I.A. Services. To avoid penalties, please make arrangements by January 31st.
In addition, when a home is sold there is a Capitalization fee and a Foundation fee required at Closing.

About Foundation Fees
“Your Community Foundation Committee (YCFC) gives residents the comfort and pride in knowing that the unsurpassed quality they’ve come to expect from Johnson Development Corp. (JDC) award-winning communities will be maintained, sustained, and even enhanced throughout the years!
“YCFC is funded through foundation fees (.25%-1.00% of the sales price of the home) collected at each closing.
“As a deed covenant, each time a property is re-sold, a contribution is once again made to YCFC. Hence, as YCFC grows— so does the master-planned development. YCFC funds help create a profound sense of community, above and beyond the boundaries of a traditional community association, through the sponsorship of unique programs, activities, and enhancements in and around all JDC communities.
“One of the newest housing trends in the nation is the establishment of Community Foundation Committees which provide a unique revenue stream that makes it possible for developers like JDC to provide a higher level of services and resources in a manner less intrusive than the standard method of assessments. YCFC at Cross Creek Ranch helps to improve both the CCR development as well as the surrounding community, thereby enhancing our residents’ most valuable asset — their home.” – Rob Bamford, General Manager, Cross Creek Ranch
“YCFC, an appointed group of community members, works in concert with the Cross Creek Ranch Community Association by reviewing requests for funding and making recommendations of projects believed to best reflect the needs and interests of the Cross Creek Ranch community.
“YCFC funds support expenditures including, but not limited to:
- Community events, clubs, groups, and sports
- Health and wellness
- The environment
“Enhancement and/or improvement of infrastructure within Cross Creek Ranch
“While YCFC is on the vanguard, it is patterned after successful models in outstanding residential communities throughout the country including Sienna Plantation and Riverstone in Fort Bend County, Texas; Tuscan Lakes in League City, Texas; Spring Island in Beaufort, South Carolina; Summerwood in Panama City Beach, Florida; and Castle Hills in Dallas, Texas.”
Children’s Catastrophic Fund
“Residents of Cross Creek Ranch take pride in knowing their community supports families who are challenged with the financial stress of caring for a child with a chronic, debilitating illness, or congenital or genetic disorder. The Children’s Catastrophic Fund (CCF) has been established to help ease financial pressures through grants to deserving families. The fund, supported by foundation fees, says, “We are here for you, and we care.” Click here for the guidelines and application.”

Unfortunately, property taxes in Texas are among the highest in the country. But before you panic, just remember that we don’t have a state income tax in Texas…so one sort of offsets the other. You can read more about Texas property taxes so you are well-informed.
Property taxes in this neighborhood may vary slightly, but are approximately 3.3-3.6 as of March 2020.
One thing I like to point out though…our newer homes tend to be much more energy-efficient than our older homes; so you will save money in energy costs when you buy a newer home. That may help partially offset the higher taxes.
There are tax benefits and other benefits in owning your own home (which can make up for the high property taxes). Please read The Benefits of Home Ownership to learn more.
