Abstract

This Article examines the unintended yet profound impacts of various taxes, either currently in effect or historically imposed, most of which are property taxes, on the architectural style in various parts of the world. Many architectural styles that the Article covers were initially intended as a tax-avoidance strategy but later on gained independent status in the history of architecture.
