The county doesn't have much to do with the difference in taxes. The biggest piece is the school taxes, where the Tomball rate is something like 25 cents higher, and the MUD tax in Creekside vs Woodlands tax in The Woodlands proper.

Well, it is not true that tax is never going down. In 2015-2016 when we were looking to buy and when Creekside Park was much newer, tax rate was around 3.4%, and now it is 2.8%. The lowest tax rates within the Woodlands are around 2.3-2.4% range, so we are not too bad comparatively, even now.

We bought in Sterling Ridge last year this time and we have loved it. Great decision.

Sterling Ridge! I'm not aware of any houses there that flooded. We still have our house there. Proper Woodlands and in Montgomery County and Conroe ISD (not Harris County and not Tomball schools in Creekside). Taxes higher (and insurance too on car, etc.) in Harris County. Creekside just doesn't have the woodsy feel of this side of The Woodlands. I believe only two ways to get in and our and the bridges get backed up (we have friends with kids at Cooper and they often complain about how long it takes to get to Cooper (private school) from Creekside.
