Land Value Taxation Advisors

Land value taxation shifts the public finance revenue base away from work and wages and onto land and natural resources, thereby securing common heritage benefits for all while furthering incentives for basic needs production. It also recaptures for municipalities gains in land values due to infrastructure spending and community growth.

This equitable, efficient approach to land allocation and conservation is increasingly recognized as necessary to correct the maldistribution of wealth that plagues market economies. Land value taxation has other benefits‹ it curtails sprawl and speculation, encourages economic development in appropriate areas, maximizes efficient use of transportation and other infrastructure, and promotes affordable land access for housing, commerce and farming.

Land Value Taxation Advisors can assist you and your community through all stages of implementation of this policy, including:

  • Initial education and advocacy
  • Land assessments
  • Establishment of accurate land cadastres
  • Creation of specific fiscal instruments to secure the value of common heritage resources for all members of the community
  • Political groundwork to obtain enabling legislation
