Rethinking Revenue Reports

The Rethinking Revenue project focuses on innovative ideas for retooling local systems to align with modern economic realities and treat citizens more fairly. 

The reports below highlight ideas and guidance to help state and local policy makers think through modernizing outmoded revenue systems. The objective is to provide local governments with tools to help them raise enough revenue for the services their communities need, and to raise that revenue fairly, in ways that are consistent with community values.

We will be adding many more ideas in the coming months. Join GFOA's Test Kitchen Community to stay informed. This community is for those interested in developing and testing new ideas and practices.
