The Spatial Distribution of Housing-Related Ordinary Income Tax Benefits
AbstractWe estimate how tax subsidies to owner-occupied housing are distributed spatially across the United States and find striking skewness. At the state level, the mean tax benefit per owned unit in 1990 ranged from $917 in South Dakota to $10,718 in Hawaii. The dispersion is slightly greater when benefit flows are measured at the metropolitan-area level. Even assuming the subsidies are funded in an income progressivity-neutral manner, a relatively few metro areas, primarily in California and the New York-Boston corridor, are shown to gain considerably while the vast majority of areas have relatively small gains or losses.
