State and Local Revenue Potential, 1973.
Quindry, Kenneth E.; Meyers, Carol S.
This document is a statistical report of the state and local revenue potentials and utilization of major tax sources. Statistical data for all 50 states and, since 1971, for the District of Columbia indicate that both collections and unutilized potential increased significantly from 1972 to 1973. The growth in collections was primarily due to economic growth (personal income) rather than adoption of higher rates and broader tax bases. Thus unutilized potential was permitted to grow along with collections. The growth in two measures was not evenly distributed. Regions stressing income taxes rather than property or sales taxes tended to experience the most impressive growth. (Author/MJM)
