Brazil's rural land tax. Tool for stimulating productive and sustainable land uses in the eastern Amazon

, : Brazil's rural land tax. Tool for stimulating productive and sustainable land uses in the eastern Amazon. Land Use Policy 12(2): 105-114

Brazil's Rural Land Tax (Imposto Territorial Rural) was designed to stimulate production in the rural sector. Property owners who have all their eligible land in use and who register high productivity can receive up to a 90% discount on their land tax payments. The paper analyses the effects of the Rural Land Tax on ranching and logging, the principal land use activities in the eastern Amazon, and find that the tax is light on ranching but heavy on logging.
