Property Taxation in Anglophone Africa

A well-functioning property tax system could offer many benefits to the nations of sub-Saharan Africa. At a time of decentralization, when local governments are being asked to assume new responsibilities for services and infrastructure in such countries as Sierra Leone, South Africa, and Uganda, a dependable and locally administered source of revenue would greatly benefit local democracy and economic development. It could improve the standard of living in local communities on a continent still grappling with abject poverty and poor governance.
