How Land Tax works, taken from my recent submission to a Parliamentary select committee (no time to even mention this!):

As a cost of ownership, property buyers incorporate effective future value capture (Land Tax) charges and reduce their purchase price offering by the according amount. This acts to channel the naturally rising value of prime locations away from property owners and towards government. In effect, this is directly inverse to current behaviour, where buyers and investors incorporate expected future capital gains into a purchasing price that is often triple what net rents OR wages can justify.
