TAX-BASE SHARING TO REDUCE FISCAL DISPARITIES. IN: MODERNIZING STATE PLANNING STATUTES: THE GROWING SMART WORKING PAPERS, VOLUME ONE

This working paper discusses the purposes of property tax-base sharing. Its purposes, all interrelated, are sixfold. Property tax-base sharing (1) creates equity in the provision of public services, (2) breaks the intensifying metropolitan mismatch between social needs and property tax-base resources, (3) undermines local fiscal incentives supporting exclusive zoning, (4) undermines local fiscal incentives supporting sprawl, (5) ends intrametropolitan competition for tax base, and (6) makes regional land-use policies possible.
