Property Taxation and Local Government Finance

Edited by Wallace E. Oates

September 2001, English

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy

The property tax is unpopular among both scholars and taxpayers, yet many scholars have proposed ideas to rehabilitate this tax and its role in local public finance. Based on a 2000 Lincoln Institute conference, this book reviews the economics of local property taxation and examines its policy implications. The chapters are written in a nontechnical form for policy makers and other noneconomists.
