Municipal Revenues and Land Policies

Edited by Gregory K. Ingram and Yu-Hung Hong

Mayo 2010, inglés

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy

Based on the proceedings of Lincoln Institute of Land Policy’s fourth annual cross-disciplinary land policy conference, this volume collects scholarly work by a wide range of experts in land policy, tax policy, economics, and urban planning.

Municipal Revenues and Land Policies offers analysis of a variety of municipal revenue instruments such as intergovernmental transfers, property tax, tax increment financing, and local option sales and income taxes. Other nontraditional public good financing mechanisms including business improvement districts, homeowners' associations, impact fees, certificates of additional construction potential, debt financing, and public-private partnerships are examined. The analysis focuses on comparing the viability of these municipal revenue sources in the face of fiscal uncertainty.
