About Us

Our mission is to research land value taxation, to assist governments in implementation and to study the effect of land based property taxation where used. We suggest implementation where appropriate but do not support political candidates or become involved in the electoral process.

The Center also gathers and disseminates articles, studies and monographs on the subject of land based taxation. The Center believes that taxation of labor and capital in urban areas is one the driving forces to the contraction and decay of our cities.

Although not the only solution, rational taxation of immovable property (land) can be a major tool for strengthening the development market in cities, reduce taxes for productive citizens and businesses and provide a progressive fair and equitable source of public revenue.
