Question: What is a tax ditch?
Answer: Tax ditch channels range in size from six to 80 feet wide, and two to 14 feet deep. The dimensions depend on the acreage being drained and the topography. A Tax Ditch Association is an organization, formed by a legal process in Superior Court, that comprises all landowners (also referred to as taxables) of a particular watershed or sub-watershed. The operations of a tax ditch are overseen by ditch managers and a secretary/treasurer.
