ABSTRACT
The article reveals that a flood of legislation is being considered in the U.S. to address concerns about property tax increases, how tax revenues are calculated and distributed, and local governments' reliance on those revenues. According to a poll conducted by the Tax Foundation, the public considers the property tax to be the least fair among all state and local taxes.
