Questions to Bill Sell at
What is Land Value Taxation?
Land Valuation is a tax assessment concept that helps a community build wealth. LVT fosters private development around public planning of transportation. The resulting tax revenues can more than pay for investments in rail and buses.
Land Value Tax assessment is market-based, relying on the private sector to develop space while the government takes a leadership position in transportation planning.
