Why it Matters: Much as with population growth, there is a relationship between taxable value of a unit and its fiscal health. Since many local governments rely heavily upon property taxes, it follows that decreases in taxable value will require adjustments in expenditures. Two-year growth periods of real taxable value for each unit are computed for the fiscal scoring computation. (n010) (o102)

Data Source: Historical Revenue & Expense data has been loaded from state available public data that each municipality files annually, and includes all fund types. Future Year data is loaded from the community's own budget or forecast projections and typically only includes General and other Governmental Funds. (n016)
