Robert Schalkenbach Foundation have produced a Primer on Land Value Tax. While focused on Colorado, the principles apply everywhere.

Also, an extensive review of research literature about LVT has been posted  here. Among the topics covered are effects on sprawl/infill, housing supply, business formation, environment, tax compliance, inequality, and rents.

Public Revenue Education Council is again representing advocates of the land value tax (LVT) at the 2016 “Legislative Summit” of the National Council of State Legislatures. Legislators and their staffs have a lot of concerns, but for most, two of the top priorities are economic development and tax revenue. At our Booth 505 in the NCSL Exhibit Hall you can learn about one policy that achieves both.

While we are based in St. Louis, proponents able to assist with smart revenue policy are located throughout the United States and other countries.
