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.

If you’re attending the National Conference of State Legislators in Indianapolis next week, stop by Booth 830, and meet experts from the Public Revenue Education Council, along with Center for the Study of Economics, Better Cities Committee, and Just Economics, to investigate a revenue source which works better for taxpayers and local governments.

Staffing our booth August 15 and 16 will be Scott Walton, Josh Vincent, Sue Walton, Eric Reingardt, and Rick Rybeck.  They look forward to meeting you, answering your questions, and telling you lots of stories about how communities have benefited from a shift of tax off of improvements and on to land value.
