I believe there are 4 tax statements.
Fort Bend ISD Tax
Fort Bend County Property Tax
City of Sugar Land Property Tax
Fort Bend County LID
I'm not sure why they received Harris County MUD.

Texas property tax law is actually quite simpler than most states. The property tax law is codified into 2 small books.
Your situation, being located in Fort Bend (?) County, is different from other counties (simply because assessors and collectors vary from co. to co. - also they are not the same thing). Call the FB Co. Tax Assessor/Collector. Their records will indicate which taxing units your parent's property is subject to. If each of those units has their own collector, you will get a bill from each one. Or you can go to the TAC's office and get a printout and an explanation of which units will be sending you a bill. Their records cover each property in the co. with accompanying codes to indicate who taxes you.
A MUD tax is essentially what the county voted it to cover. It varies from bridges being built to hospitals' renovations to underground phone lines. Your taxes go to pay the bonds that paid for these sundry items.
Remember, call the FB County Tax Assessor. This is quite a different animal from a tax collector. If you need more detailed info, feel free to email me. Hope this helps...Source(s): Texas property tax analyst: for a major oil company; in business for myself for 5 years.
