Local Government Revenue Structure: Does Home Rule Matter?

This paper focuses on the question of whether home rule authority as granted under the Illinois Constitution results in changes in municipal tax structure and tax effort.

Home rule authority appears to be more valuable for regulatory purposes than for its taxation powers.
