Modernising Property Taxes


How we tax property is fundamental to the UK’s economic well-being. It determines the quality of people’s housing, their ability to own their own home, how we invest our money, the survival of the high street and much else besides.

Not only is the way in which we currently tax property self-evidently unfair but hugely distorts the operation of our economy. Ask any economist or local authority leader and they will tell you that many of the challenges we face today – regeneration, inequality and property – come down to how we tax property, but no government will touch it.

The purpose of this event is to ask not only how property taxes should be, but how they can be reformed – how we can make any reform politically palatable.
