Abstract [en]

We show that house prices in general did not respond to a substantial cut in the nationalproperty tax in Sweden. The estimates are based on rich register data covering more than 100,000 sales over a time period of two and a half years. Because the Swedish property tax isnational and thus unrelated to local public goods, our setting is ideal for causal identificationof the property tax on house prices. We observe price increases only in a small segment ofthe market containing properties with very high tax values. We discuss, but can admittedlynot empirically discriminate between, several potential explanations for why we find noevidence of capitalization except for the top segment of the market.
