This is completely wrong. When I lived in an apartment in Orlando I paid rent, which went to the property owners who paid the property taxes on the apartment I lived in.

I now rent a slip at a marina, who pay property taxes(and probably a crap ton more taxes and fees than my apartment owners ever had to deal with) with the money I pay for on my slip.

It's no different.
