The OECD Network on Fiscal Relations across Levels of Government provides analysis and statistical underpinnings on the relationship between central and subcentral government, and its impact on efficiency, equity and macroeconomic stability.
Fiscal Decentralisation Database
2014 data has been added to the fiscal decentralisation database tables. It now provides comparative information by level of government sector, [Federal or Central (including Social Security), State/regions and Local] for OECD member countries between 1965 and 2014.
New database tables provide an overview on recurrent immovable property taxation (category 4100 in the Revenue Statistics classification) in OECD countries in a comparative perspective.
Tables show the scope of property taxation and the items that are taxed; the approaches for assessing and updating property values; the government level responsible for property taxation; tax exemptions and abatements; and tax rates and their variation across sub-national governments. The tables will be updated every two years.
