I disagree that it benefits your property specifically. As you said, it's benefitting the neighborhood, not your property alone. I see that as a difference, and the critical one.

Then what is an example of a tax that tends to "increase the value of the property assessed"? That is, what tax can you think of that would be excluded by 164(c)(1)?
