Bernard Tayoh

March 2009, English

The Lincoln Institute and the African Tax Institute (ATI), located at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, have come together in a joint effort to better understand property-related taxation in Africa. Their goal is to collect data and to issue reports on the present status and future prospects of property-related taxes in all 54 African countries, with a primary focus on land and building taxes and real property transfer taxes. Each report aims to provide concise, uniform, and comparable information on property taxes as legislated and executed within a specific country or region. This paper provides a regional overview of property taxation in Francophone Africa 2 (Cameroon, Central African Republic, and Côte d’Ivoire).
