I'm working on a survey down in southern Mississippi.  It's a lot that's around an acre. 

The lot is in two different sections....

In two different townships....

On two different meridians.

The northern portion of the lot is in T1N, R1W of the Choctaw Meridian.

The southern portion is in T10N, R8E of the Washington Meridian.

And the first question the client asks: This isn't going to cost me any more, is it?

how does that all work out for school levies/ property taxes, etc?

Could be the same school district, but, if the townships have a tax that could differ a tad.  Otherwise, it might not matter.

Once had a client ignore my suggestion to move one line of a 20+ acre tract 25 feet further east so as to match the section line.  The section line was the divide line between two very different school districts.  That odd 25-foot strip would need to be assessed separately from about 200 other acres.

Guess I wasn't figuring on school districts crossing county lines, but I'm not too up on all that.

School district boundaries can be really weird.  The one I was in during my high school days was in three counties.  Roughly two-thirds of one plus odd portions of one to the west and one to the east.  A bit more than fifty road miles from one extreme to the other.  

The Syracuse, KS school district is almost 1000 square miles while the Hutchinson, KS school district is 14 square miles.  Syracuse has about 540 students while Hutchinson has about 4900.

I don't think any county lines in Alabama follow the meridians. It's probably that way in Mississippi too.

Tommy, that sounds like a long trip to make to survey just one acre.

It is better to remain silent and let people think you are dumb rather than opening your mouth and removing all doubt.
