The property tax is one of the oldest and most criticized forms of taxation. Despite criticism over the years, it is still an important source of revenue for most local governments and some state governments because of its income capability and familiarity in the tax system. Efforts to reform property tax administration, provide tax relief to property owners, and repeal property taxes on certain classes of property will continue for years to come. This publication is designed to place these issues in a decision-making framework. The purpose is to educate rather than to advocate a particular solution.
