Example text

Summary A uniform assessment system is necessary if one is to establish a tax base that is fair, transparent and accountable. Uniformity is more likely achieved if a few practices are followed. First, within a region, state, or province, all assessors work from a standard assessment manual that is updated frequently to reflect changing market conditions. Second, assessors should be required to pass specific education and training programmes on assessment practices and procedures. Third, Property Tax: A Situation Analysis and Overview 15 although the evidence is sketchy, assessors working for centralized assessment agencies seem to be more successful (because they are more likely to work at arm’s length) than those working for municipalities in achieving uniformity in assessment.

Indeed, this approach is becoming more and more common in countries relying on frequent property reassessments. Mass appraisal makes use of a multiple regression statistical package. It predicts the market value of properties from known values of other variables associated with these properties (such as living area, lot size, location, availability of garage, age of building, number of bathrooms, and so on). This technique examines properties that have actually sold and identifies the statistical relationship between a number of features of these properties and their selling price.

Third, they are efficient as long as higher tax rates apply to tax bases that are most inelastic in supply. Since residential property has an inelastic tax base when compared with commercial and industrial property (it can move to other municipalities and to other countries), this calls for higher tax rates on residential properties than on commercial and industrial properties, a practice that is almost never followed as is noted in the next section. Fourth, variable tax rates have a further advantage in that they could be used to distort decisions deliberately to achieve certain municipal land use objectives.
