A long-run spatial general equilibrium model of an urban area is used to examine the effects of a change from a tax system in which land rents and capital values are not differentiated for tax purposes to one in which land rents are much more heavily taxed than are capital values. The model is parameterized to fit a particular metropolitan area and solved on a computer. It is estimated that, for the most realistic parameterization considered, the welfare gain in making such a policy change can… 
Economic and Spatial Effects of Land Value Taxation in an Urban Area: An Urban Computable General Equilibrium Approach
This paper studies the effects of switching from a capital property tax to a land value tax, using an urban computable general equilibrium model calibrated to the features of the Atlanta, Georgia,
A welfare analysis of the site value taxation model
This study is a short-run version of Brueckner's (long-run) analysis of graded tax systems. Brueckner assumes a long-run market equilibrium that allows for changes in the market value of the land
Financing transportation with land value taxes: Effects on development intensity
A significant portion of local transportation funding comes from the property tax. The tax is conventionally assessed on both land and buildings, but transportation increases only the value of the
PROSPECTS FOR LAND RENT TAXES IN STATE AND LOCAL TAX REFORMS
This paper develops a general equilibrium model of an economy that produces output using capital, labor and land as inputs. It further develops an approach that allows specific parameters in the
THE IMPACT OF URBAN LAND TAXATION: THE PITTSBURGH EXPERIENCE
In 1979-80, the city of Pittsburgh restructured its property tax system by raising the rate on land to more than five times the rate on structures. This paper explores the impact of this tax reform
Fiscal Instruments for Sustainable Development: The Case of Land Taxes
Economists argue that land rent taxation is an ideal form of taxation as it causes no deadweight losses and has therefore no adverse effects on growth. Nevertheless, pure land rent taxation is rarely
The Economic Effects of Replacing the Property Tax with a Sales or Income Tax:A Computable General Equilibrium Approach
With the most recent wave of property tax restructuring in the U.S., policy makers have considered the possibility of replacing the property tax. In this analysis we use data for Indiana and a
An Experimental Economics Investigation of the Land Value Tax: Efficiency, Acceptability, and Positional Goods
This research offers the first economic experiment investigating the land tax, where landowners invest under different property tax regimes. A voting treatment assesses the relative acceptability of
The Impact of Interstate Mobility on the Effectiveness of Property Tax Reduction in Georgia
This paper develop a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model and a microsimulation model (MSM) to analyze the economic and welfare effects of a Georgia property tax proposal, which would have
Reducing Property Taxes on Homeowners
We consider a proposal that reduces by half the taxes on homesteaded properties and replaces the lost revenue by increasing the base and rate of the state sales tax. We develop a computable general

Property tax classification and welfare in urban areas: A general equilibrium computational approach
Abstract This paper examines some of the structural and welfare effects of a change from a tax system in an urban area that classifies property by use for tax assessment to one that does not

THE monocentric urban area is without doubt the best known theoretical construct in the literature of urban economics. Many variations exist, but all share certain basic features: a city is located

This paper analyzes via a computable general equilibrium model the effects of a reduction of the Jamaican income tax in favor of either a land value tax or a capital value tax. Important conclusions

TLDR
It is shown how a broad array of spatial urban models, including ones involving endogenously generated externalities, can be studied within the context of a single unifying computational framework.
