The Impact of School Finance Reforms on Local Tax Revenues
- (pp. 416-18)
AbstractFor many applications in public finance, it is difficult to find a source of exogeneous variation in local taxes. In this paper we use an event study design to show that the school finance reforms are one potential source of exogenous variation in taxes. This new instrument enlarges the tool kit for applied economists and other social scientists studying public finance and education.
