New Winter 2007 Tax Watch Available
December 20, 2006
Just in time for the stay-indoors-and-read holiday season, the Winter 2007 issue of Tax Watch is now available online.
The lead feature tells the story of rising property taxes around the country in recent years. Other stories include: the economists’ case against gross receipts taxes, the economics of how cigarette taxes increase crime, and the distribution of the benefits of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts between states and different income groups. Read the full issue here (PDF).
Here’s a highlight from our “From the Archives” feature on page 7—the breakdown of the total federal, state and local tax burden in 1962.
