How to Reduce Property Taxes. Policy Brief No. 3
Center for Public Policy Priorities
This is the third in a trilogy of policy briefs discussing education and taxation. In their first brief, the authors explain the state's need to increase its investment in public education. In their second, they explain how a Texas-style personal income tax is the best way both to adequately support public education and to reduce reliance on the property tax. In that piece, they outline why a new business tax by itself won't raise enough money to significantly cut property taxes and why a higher sales tax would be a move in the wrong direction. In this brief, the authors explain alternative ways to cut property taxes, targeting reductions to those who need them the most.
