International Trends in Property Tax
Presented by Paul Sanderson
2.0 credits

In this webinar, Paul Sanderson will look at the key issues concerning property taxes around the world and comment on how different countries are addressing them. In particular, he will be looking at the "popularity" of property taxes, the burden of property taxes in different countries, the frequency of revaluations around the world, the different valuation bases used, current valuation issues, the volume of appeals and how they are dealt with in various jurisdictions.

Paul will also be referring to the recent "International Scorecard" relating to property tax systems in the USA and in selected countries around the world.
