Title: Economic and tax issues
Author: Moffat, Steverson O.; Greene, John L.;
Publication Series: Book Chapter
Description: Economic conditions and tax policies affect land use decisions everywhere, but their effects on the rate of change in land use are particularly large in the wildland-urban interface. We begin this chapter with a brief economic history of the South and a description of the macroeconomic trends and conditions that affect microeconomics at the wildlandurban interface. Next comes a description of the many Federal and State taxes that affect nonindustrial private landowners. This is followed by a summary of historical trends in rural land taxation and a discussion of how taxes affect land use change at the wildland-urban interface. The chapter concludes with discussion of existing economic and tax tools and of challenges and opportunities in research, education, and policy.
