Property tax revolts have occurred both in the United States and abroad. This book examines the causes and consequences of property tax revolts, focusing on California's experience with Proposition 13.

Book Description:

Property tax revolts have occurred both in the United States and abroad. This book examines the causes and consequences of such revolts with a special focus on the California experience with Proposition 13. The work examines the consequences of property tax limitations for public finance with a detailed analysis of the tax system put into place in California. New theoretical approaches and new evidence from a comprehensive empirical study are used to highlight the equity and efficiency of property tax systems. Since property taxes are the primary source of revenue for local governments, the book compares and contrasts the experiences of several states with regard to the evolution of local government following property tax limitations. Finally, the book considers alternatives for reform and lessons to avoid future tax conflicts of this kind.

From the Back Cover:

Property tax revolts have been a much-publicized feature of contemporary political life in the United States and abroad. Focusing on California's experience with Proposition 13, which has had potentially far-reaching political ramifications yet whose effects and possible alternatives have been little understood, this book examines the causes and consequences of property tax revolts. The authors begin by discussing the origins of four different historical episodes with property tax revolts and the nature of property tax systems throughout the world. They then examine the consequences of property tax limitations with a detailed analysis of the acquisition-value tax system passage of Proposition 13 established. New theoretical approaches and new evidence from a comprehensive empirical study are brought to bear on the California experience in order to highlight the key aspects of equity and efficiency of the property tax system. Since property taxes are the primary source of revenue for local governments, the authors compare and contrast the experiences of Massachusetts and California with regard to the evolution of local government following property tax limitations. Finally, the book considers alternatives for reform and lessons to avoid future property tax revolts.
