San Diego (May 19, 2020) – University of San Diego (USD) School of Law Assistant Professor Ariel Jurow Kleiman authored an article with University of Virginia Professor Andrew Hayashi about how adopting progressive property taxes can give cash-strapped local governments more revenue

In the article, Jurow Kleiman and Hayashi write about how implementing this type of tax change could allow rates to increase with property values, income-based tax relief or deferral of payment. Many states provide similar options to senior citizens and the disabled, and extending this relief to those eligible for unemployment benefits could increase spending and reduce mortgage defaults during a recession, they argue.
