PURCE presentation to focus on property taxes, local government budgets

The Purdue University Research Center in Economics (PURCE) is offering a lunchtime presentation Dec. 16 that will focus on "Property Taxes & Local Government Budgets: What’s the Outlook?"

Supply chain disruptions, inflation, and COVID-19 can and will affect property values, incomes, levies and costs. For those local governments that rely mostly on property taxes, how will their budgets be affected? This largely depends on property tax assessment procedures and controls. In Indiana, local governments raise more revenue from property tax than any other tax.

Larry DeBoer, professor emeritus of agricultural economics at Purdue, will analyze Indiana’s situation in the PURCE policy talk. DeBoer's research interests include state and local government, property tax and economic outlooks.

The host will be Kevin Mumford, the Kozuch Director of PURCE and associate professor of economics, and there will be a Q&A following DeBoer’s talk.

To attend in person: RSVP online by Monday (Dec. 13). Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. ET with the presentation following at noon. The presentation will be held in Rawls Hall's Third Floor Commons. Protect Purdue safety protocols will be followed, and attendees are required to wear a mask covering their mouth and nose while indoors and not eating. Parking is available in the nearby Grant Street Parking Garage and a parking pass will be provided upon request at check-in.

To attend virtually: Register online by 11 a.m. Dec. 16 to receive the livestream link. Guests will join the livestream at noon with no camera or mic option. Guests will be able to type and submit a question that the moderator can read to DeBoer.
