Property tax caps have mixed impact on local governments-S&P
Jan 7 (Reuters) - Property tax caps in eastern U.S. states have constrained some local governments' budgets but had little impact on others, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said in a report on Monday.
In some states, the caps, adopted in the past five years, have limited the budgetary flexibility of local governments and school districts, S&P said.
In other states, "the limitations have posed minimal fiscal constraints based on either the magnitude of the cap, the ability to override, or the allowable exceptions," S&P credit analyst Lindsay Wilhelm said in a statement.
