Abstract

This study empirically investigates the impact of higher property taxation on net in-migration to SMSAs over the 1965-70 time period. Using two stage least squares, the estimation reveals that net migration is a decreasing function of the per capita level of property taxes. This provides additional support for the theory of voting with one's feet.
