Puerto Rico: Potential Federal Fiscal Implications of Statehood


Robert Merrill (Editor)

Series: Latin American Political, Economic, and Security Issues
BISAC: POL057000

Puerto Rico has access to many federal programs, and is subject to certain federal tax laws; however, for some programs and for some aspects of tax law, Puerto Rico is treated differently than the states. Options for Puerto Rico’s political status include statehood.

This book examines potential changes to selected federal programs and related spending changes, and changes to selected federal revenue sources that would be expected should Puerto Rico become a state. This book also discusses economic and fiscal factors under statehood that could influence changes in spending and revenue (Imprint: Nova)
