2020 David C. Lincoln Fellowship Symposium: Measuring the Value of Land
The David C. Lincoln Fellowships in Land Value Taxation were established to encourage academic and professional interest in land value taxation through support for major research projects. This program honors David C. Lincoln, founding chairman of the Lincoln Institute, and his long-standing commitment to land value taxation studies by encouraging scholars and practitioners to undertake new work on the theory of land value taxation and its application to contemporary fiscal systems.
The 2019-2020 program focuses specifically on identifying practical land valuation methods that could be employed by assessors and public finance officials to measure changes in land values induced by public investment. Research projects use a data set that offers 12 years of land sales, improved sales, and assessment data from a large urban county.
This event provides an opportunity for current David C. Lincoln Fellows to share their research on land valuation methods and receive feedback from valuation practitioners and other experts.
