# How much revenue could an 100% land value tax be able to generate for the Indian government?

So as a Georgist (follower of Henry George), I believe most form of taxation is immoral and economically inefficient except the land value tax (not to be confused with property taxes) and other pigovian taxes. However, I'm also a pragmatic person and therefore, it may not be possible to fund an entire government through these taxes alone as most Georgists believe.

That is why I want to ask how much revenue would an 100% land value tax be able to generate for the Indian government, assuming no changes in the current levels of the government.

I do realise such a tax would be difficult to practically implement due to poor land records in India but nevertheless, I'm interested to know if it is feasible in theory.

• $0, because all land becomes instantly worthless? – user253751 Feb 23 at 9:15 • @user253751 The value of a site remains the same at 100% LVT. The price someone would pay to own a site would be$0 at 100% LVT but the rent someone would pay to use the site remains the same whether rent is paid to a private owner or the government in the form of 100% LVT. – sba222 Feb 23 at 22:20
• @sba222 then who determines the value? Usually the value is the sale price. – user253751 Feb 24 at 8:25
