The Effects of the Property Tax: A General Equilibrium Simulation
This paper uses a general equilibrium model of residential land use to study the effects of the property tax in a closed city. Two different specifications of the production technology for housing are used, and yield similar results. The model is too complicated to be solved in closed form, but an efficient computational technique using a simple search algorithm was developed to solve it numerically. This type of model and computational technique can be applied to a wide variety of practical issues in urban economics.
