Tax Allocation District (TAD) Study

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Commissioned by the Livable Communities Coalition earlier this year, the survey is the first comprehensive look at the financial performance of tax allocation districts in Georgia. Do they perform as promised? What is the dollar impact on the taxing jurisdictions that have approved them? Study authors Kenneth L. Bleakley of Atlanta-based Bleakley Advisory Group and Dr. David L. Sjoquist, professor of economics and Georgia State University and director of the Fiscal Research Center at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, will release the findings of their study on Oct. 4.
Their presentation will be followed by a panel discussion that will involve not only the study authors but also representatives of two or more of the jurisdictions studied. The floor will then be opened to questions from attendees, with questions directed both to the study authors and the guest panelists.
The study conclusions will be posted on the Home Page after Oct. 4.
