Background Paper on State and Local Taxation.
This paper represents part of a comprehensive study of the existing New York State school support formulae. The report consists of (1) analysis of the 1969 State revenue increases -- wage increases and inflation, expansion of State and local government services, property tax relief, and increased annual revenue needs; (2) explication of factors affecting property tax rate disparities -- population migration trends, increasing length of schooling for individuals, changing composition of the work force, and differences among suburban communities; and (3) discussion of taxation alternatives -- growth in property tax base, growth in income and sales tax bases, and an integrated income property sales tax proposal. A 28-item bibliography is appended. (DE)
