[Helen F Ladd; Wallace E Oates; Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.;] -- The book summarizes the current thinking of urban and public finance economists on the interactions between tax policy and land use policy as pursued by local governments in the United States. Local Government Tax and Land Use Policies in the United States is an accessible, non-technical evaluation of the most recent economic thinking on the nexus between local land use and tax policies.

In Part I, Helen Ladd provides a comprehensive summary of the extensive literature on the interaction of local land use and tax : Helen F. Ladd. The “homevoter hypothesis” of this book is that local governments make land use decisions based on the views of the typical homeowner.

Because a house is a large and illiquid investment, a “homevoter” (Fischel's word for a home-owning voter) often focuses not on maximizing property values, but on reducing the risk of a decline in property by: This book is a non-technical evaluation of economic thinking on the interactions between local land use and tax policies.

A use tax is a type of tax levied in the United States by numerous state governments. It is essentially the same as a sales tax but is applied not where a product or service was sold but where a merchant bought a product or service and then converted it for its own use, without having paid tax when it was initially purchased.

Use taxes are functionally equivalent to sales taxes. Land use has important consequences for the environment, public health, economic productivity, inequality and social segregation.

Land use policies are often complex and require co-ordination across all levels of government as well as across policy sectors. Not surprisingly, land use decisions can be contentious and conflicts over land use are common across the OECD.

Most property tax revenue comes from local levies on land and improvements to it, but some states also tax personal property (such as machinery, equipment, and motor vehicles). The tax equals a percentage of the taxable value of the property and may be levied in some form at every level of government: state, county, municipal, township, school.

A land value tax or location value tax (LVT), also called a site valuation tax, split rate tax, or site-value rating, is an ad valorem levy on the unimproved value of property taxes, it disregards the value of buildings, personal property and other improvements to real estate.
