Jacinto Bené Fício and the Property Tax

This illustrated video in Portuguese, developed by the Ministry of Cities of Brazil and the Lincoln Institute, provides a user-friendly representation of a Brazilian municipality’s experience implementing and collecting the property tax (Imposto Predial e Territorial Urbano or IPTU). The video tells the story of two neighboring municipalities: one in which property has been poorly managed, and another that benefits from an updated cadastre and an efficient fiscal policy.
