Property Tax in Asia
Note: This book is now available for pre-order and will be published in December 2021.
“This forward-looking, authoritative review of the current status and likely future development of the property tax is very timely, given the ongoing strategic economic development within the region. The fact that many countries discussed are at different stage of economic and fiscal reform will allow readers within the region and beyond to reflect on how their own jurisdictions might benefit from the experiences documented here.”
— Frances Plimmer, Fellow, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors
