Title: An analysis of PILT-related payments and likely property tax liability of Federal resource management lands

Author: Schuster, Ervin G.; Beckley, Paul R.; Bushur, Jennifer M.; Gebert, Krista M.; Niccolucci, Michael J.;

Date: 1999

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. RMRS GTR-36WWW. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station. 23 p.

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: This report stems from Congressional concern over the equivalency between Federal payments to counties containing Federal resource management lands, the likely tax liability, and other county-level benefits and costs associated with those lands. Results indicate that the overall tax liability on Federal lands is almost three times the Federal payments. A survey of county executive officers indicates that the direct fiscal costs or benefits to county governments from Federal lands and programs are modest.

Keywords: revenue sharing, tax equivalency, PILT, payments to counties, Payments in Lieu of Taxes Act
