Abstract : Buoyancy in taxes is a relative term which tends to vary from time to time, place to place and with the nature or type of tax. The revenue collections from tax mainly depend upon incidence of such tax and vibrancy of tax administration. Of course, the responsiveness of tax payers also pays equal importance in the buoyancy. However, as long as tax remains as a compulsory payment to the Government, the revenue collections from tax may at the most get postponed as such the buoyancy in long run will never decelerate. When there is economic up search, naturally, tax base gets expanded and buoyancy also gets increased. In case of property tax, which is levied by local governments, buoyancy is directly linked to incidence a largely base for property tax, more the revenue and vice versa. Property tax mainly comprises of house tax, vacancy tax, water tax, lighting tax, conservancy-drainage tax, fire tax. The incidences of these taxes have been changed from time to time depending upon the situational compulsions and advantages. Every time the changes are made, there are reflective changes in the buoyancy.
