Who pays the property tax? : a new view by Henry J Aaron( Book )
13 editions published between 1975 and 1993 in English and Spanish and held by 1,102 libraries worldwide
This book considers the most common criticisms of the property tax as a source of government revenue and argues that, contrary to popular belief, empirical studies show that the property tax is probably a largely progressive tax. The author also examines common defects in property tax administration and concludes that these problems are remediable and are not inherent in the property tax. The bulk of the analysis is presented in four chapters that focus in turn on a description of current practices in property tax legislation and administration, an analysis of the impact of property taxes and how their burdens are distributed, a discussion of current approaches to administering property taxes and the advisability of reforming these administrative practices, and a discussion of various state plans for reforming property taxes in order to provide tax relief to low income households and to improve the equity of school finance systems.

The two papers that make up the core of this book address a fundamental question in the current debate over Social Security, whether to shift, in part or entirely, from today's pay-as-you-go system to one in which individuals retain control over the investment of their funds and therefore personally bear the associated risk.

Closing the deficit : how much can later retirement help? by Henry J Aaron( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 242 libraries worldwide
For the past two decades Americans over age 60 have increasingly delayed their withdrawal from the workforce, a reversal of a century-old trend toward early retirement. For instance, from 1991 to 2010 the employment rate increased by more than half among 68-year-old men and by about two-thirds among women of the same age. Using data from the Current Population Survey, Working Our Way out of the Deficit explores the historical trajectory of retirement and the labor force participation rate of older men and women. Who chooses to delay retirement? Have older workers delayed their departure from career jobs? How will working longer affect the outlook for the federal budget? Brookings economists Henry Aaron and Gary Burtless join with renowned colleagues to examine the impact of extended employment against the backdrop of the federal deficit problem
