Tax policy and public finance expert Andrew Reschovsky presented to a special Wisconsin legislative committee charged with developing income tax reform proposals on September 6. He also is serving on the city of Madison’s Payments In Lieu of Taxes Task Force, which is charged with exploring policies through which nonprofit property owners would make voluntary payments in lieu of property taxes. The web site theatlanticcities.com quotes Reschovsky in an article on the potential for countries in Europe to tap the property tax to offset municipal financial woes.
