Buy Article:


As revenue-sharing payments from federal lands decline, government officials and resource professionals are increasingly concerned about the equivalency between federal payments on resource management lands and likely property taxes those lands could generate. We developed tax equivalency information through a nationwide random sample of 105 counties, where we simulated agency property taxes after working with county assessors and agency land personnel. We found that although tax-equivalent counties receive somewhat larger federal payments, the big difference is in tax bills: Tax-equivalent counties have substantially lower tax bills than nonequivalent counties.
