Cleveland (OH), Property tax
Economists have long criticized the property tax on two counts: inherent assessment inaccuracies and regressivity with respect to income. The first problem is somewhat bureaucratic in nature, being the responsibility of the assessors. The second, however, looks into the heart of the property tax because it charges that the tax is fundamentally flawed. This paper will present evidence that rejects the regressivity notion.
