Property Tax Policy

Any purposeful course of action by governmental bodies that affects or determines the way property taxes are created, levied, collected, or spent. Property tax policy issues can include determining the division of responsibility between local and state/provincial governments, equalization, appeals, public relations, reappraisal systems, the market value standard, exemptions and abatements, fractional assessments (ratios), and limits on taxes and assessed values.
