Public Administration Colloquium Series – Winn Decker
Winn's presentation will focus on how non-tax revenues are distributed at the county level:
Traditionally, states have been reliant on the revenue from income and sales taxes to fund the goods and services they provide. As state budgets continue to grow, though, expenditures often outpace revenue receipts from taxation. State have looked for different ways to raise revenue, but adoption of new taxes is unpopular with constituents. As such, lawmakers are turning to non-tax revenue sources to fill these budget deficits.
Non-tax revenue comes in many forms, including fines and penalties, investments, and goods and services. While there is some literature on fines and fees as non-tax revenue, literature is lacking in understanding how goods and services serve as a non-tax revenue. Further, there is a need to explore how the non-tax revenue from goods and services is redistributed to the constituents of the state. This leads to the following research question: How are non-tax revenues from goods and services redistributed to the counties in which the revenue is generated?
The purpose of the Public Administration Colloquium Series is to foster a culture of research and scholarly exchange within the Department of Public Administration. Both faculty and PhD students in Public Administration are invited to present their current research for discussion and constructive feedback. Department of Public Administration faculty, PhD students, and others as interested may attend.
