REFINING ESTIMATES OF DOUBLE TAXATION. LESSONS FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT IN A SUBURBAN COUNTY

The fragmented dicision making of multiple, overlapping governments in response to growth-induced needs for services can result in double taxation. A case study of law enforcement in a suburban county illustrates the double taxation of city residents, who pay for services from both the county and city but mainly receive them from the city. The study improves on previous studies by dividing the unincorporated area into two areas based on intensity of development. The main beneficiaries of the double-taxation subsidy are the unincorporated suburbs. The county government is struggling with the political process of finding a solution to the inequity.
