Overview

The 28 studies were prepared for the World Bank in early 2002 as part of the background for its 2003 Land Policies for Growth and Poverty Reduction. Most of them are case studies reviewing the taxation of land and property in 25 countries, five each in the OEDC, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America with one in each group receiving fuller coverage. They focus on the potential contributions of the taxes to the revenues of urban and rural governments and to more efficient land use. Special attention is paid to the tax base, tax rates, and administration, on which the ability of the property tax to make such contributions largely depends.
