Effective Property Tax Rates and Capital Formation Issues: Manvel, Acton and Darby

Robert Buckley () and John Simonson

Real Estate Economics, 1987, vol. 15, issue 1, 725-738

Abstract: Using comparatively new data sources, this study estimates that effective property tax rates on taxable capital declined nearly 50% in the U.S. during the decade of the 1970s, a phenomenon generally overlooked or understated in previous studies. Recognition of this halving of property tax rates permits at least a partial explanation for a number of otherwise unexplained macroeconomic occurrences during the 1970s, particularly the smaller‐than‐anticipated interactive effects of inflation and the income tax on interest rates, on the one hand, and on capital allocation, on the other. The clear implication is that greater attention must be paid to trends in effective property tax rates in understanding and predicting important economic behavior.
