Event description

Description

Should taxpayer money be diverted from key government functions to well-connected developers? Incentive programs like tax incremented financing (TIF) have cost state and local governments billions in recent years. This presentation will outline the problem of TIF abuse in Missouri and needed reforms that will protect taxpayers.

He works with taxpayers, media, and policymakers to foster understanding of the consequences of policies regarding economic development, taxation, education, and transportation. His paper on tax increment financing in Kansas City, “Urban Neglect: Kansas City’s Misuse of Tax Increment Financing” has spurred parents and activists to oppose TIF projects where they are not needed.
