Webinar - Urban Property and Land Taxation in Argentina: The Challenge of Decentralization
The operation of fiscal federalism in Argentina has resulted in new reform initiatives that are intended to reduce the imbalances between own-source revenues and expenditures at the central and sub-national government levels. In this presentation, experts Cynthia Goytia, Chair of the Urban Policy and Housing Research Center at Torcuato Di Tella University in Buenos Aires, and Marcela Cristini, researcher Urban Policy and Housing Research Center at Torcuato Di Tella, will evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of decentralizing the organization and collection of the Urban Property and Land Tax from the provincial governments to the medium sized cities of Argentina. Their presentation will explore strategies that are being implemented to increase revenues, improve local government accountability, and create a larger fiscal space for local management of urban development.
