No Boil Water Notice

There is no boil water notice in effect for Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District #185 residents or businesses.  The City of Houston has issued a Boil Water Notice for their water system and other systems effected by the City’s issue. While local media (and social media) are reporting boil water notices for the City and those other Water Districts in our area, these notices do not pertain to Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District #185 receivers, as the District maintains independent water production facilities. Again, Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District #185 is not currently under a Boil Water Notice.

In the event a Boil Water Notice needs to be issued for our community, notification will be provided. For immediate and up-to-date 24/7 information, you can always reach out to EDP’s 24-hour Customer Service line at (832) 467-1599.

2022 Tax Rate Set

The Board of Directors of Fort Bend County M.U.D. #185 (the district) voted to decrease the MUD Property Tax Rate to $0.85 per $100 valuation for the 2022 tax year.  Please keep in mind this rate is for the district only.

The district has authorized Bob Leared Interests, the tax assessor-collector, to mail duplicate tax statements in January 2023. These statements will be mailed to homeowners whose original tax statement was requested by and mailed to a mortgage company AND remains unpaid at the time of the January mailing.  If a DUPLICATE TAX STATEMENT is received, this is a reminder to contact the mortgage company to ensure timely payment of the MUD taxes by the due date of January 31, 2023.

Payment of taxes can be made online at   There is an additional processing fee when making online payments, however the fee for paying by e-check is only $1.00.  Receipts are also available on the website.

This website is not associated with any DOXO website. 

If paying using a DOXO website the processing fee will be higher.

In addition to paying online, payment can be made by calling OPAY Customer Service at (800)487-4567 between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm CST.  Select the customer service option, then tell the representative payment is for TEXAS taxes.  The entire account number will need to be provided which begins with “369,” and is located on the tax statement.  There is an additional processing fee when making payments by phone.  E-checks can not be processed by phone.

The 2022 tax statements will include an individual QR code this year.  Scanning the QR code will be a direct link to that particular account on the Bob Leared Interests website.

If you have not received your 2022 Fort Bend County M.U.D. #185 tax statement by the end of November and are unable to locate the account online at, please contact the tax assessor-collector at 713-932-9011 to discuss the tax account.  Failure to receive a tax statement will not extend the due date of January 31, 2023, and does not meet the legal requirements to waive penalties or interest which will be added if payment is not made in full by the due date.
