Property tax reform by George E., Ed Peterson( Book )

6 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nine experts examine the nature and administration of the property tax, analyzing its effects on educational opportunity, land use, racial residential patterns, central city finance, neighborhood deterioration, and low income housing. The so-called circuit-breaker, a form of property tax relief that has rapidly come into widespread use, is viewed from conflicting perspectives. The implications of using the property tax for school finance is examined in light of several court decisions on the issue. Reforms proposed by one or more authors include upgrading assessment practices, changing the property tax base to site values only, relying more heavily on user charges, and shifting part of the property tax to the State level.

Lessons for the urban century : decentralized infrastructure finance in the World Bank by Patricia Clarke Annez( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book takes a look at the past to gain insights for the future. Nearly 30 years ago, when the world urban population was only about half of the 3 billion that it is today, when most Less Developed Countries (LDCs) were primarily rural, and before the wave of decentralization of the 1980s and 1990s, the World Bank developed an instrument with great potential. The key characteristics of this instrument, the Urban Infrastructure Fund (UIF), are several. It provides finance for an array of urban services, not just one sector, such as water and sanitation, leaving flexibility for local beneficiaries to set their priorities. UIF projects operate in more than one city. Perhaps the most important distinctive feature is that these projects use local institutions to do the work of identifying, appraising and channeling finance to subnational entities (municipalities, local utilities, or community groups) on behalf of the World Bank. This arrangement makes it feasible to reach beyond the major capitals or business centers such as Chongqing, Mumbai, or Sao Paulo, or even regional capitals, to fund much smaller subprojects, suited to the needs and capacities of smaller cities and towns, because local agents are tasked with identifying and appraising these projects. Delegating these functions makes it practicable not only for a large International Financial Institution (IFI) such as the World Bank but also for national governments to reach small municipalities. Providing support to large numbers of municipalities with relatively small investment needs is a complex task, but it is fundamental to scaling up beyond small pilot projects to programs improving urban services countrywide

Unlocking land values to finance urban infrastructure by George E Peterson( Book )

26 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlocking Land Values to Finance Urban Infrastructure examines the theory underlying different instruments of land-based finance, such as betterment levies, developer exactions, impact fees, and the exchange of publicly owned land assets for infrastructure. It provides a wealth of case-study illustrations of how different land-based financing tools have been implemented, and the lessons learned from these experiences. This practical guide is designed to help expand the role of land-based financing in urban capital budgets in a way that strengthens urban infrastructure finance and urban land markets."--Jacket
