Using Land Value Tax to Revitalize Markets and Achieve Smart GrowthLand Value Taxation (LVT) is an underutilized component in tax policy that encourages economic development and ensures sustainable smart growth strategies. As an alternative to the standard property tax, LVT creates an environment that encourages new development as well as incentivizes maintenance and renovation of existing structures.
