As the nation begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, jurisdictions across the country are assessing the impacts. Understanding the unique impacts of the pandemic on different revenue streams is key to building accurate forecasts.

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Leila Bengali, an Economist at the UCLA Anderson Forecast, and Fran Mancia, Avenu’s VP of Government Relations. Together, they bring years of insight into what California’s future tax situation has in-store.

In this episode we cover:

  • Sales tax and property tax trends in 2021
  • The landscape for local governments
  • What societal changes may carry over from the pandemic and impact future revenue
  • Tactics jurisdictions can take to prepare for a post-COVID world
