Explaining Property and Taxes Through Comic Books

A comic book is helping municipal employees in Brazil to understand how to catalog land for the collection of property taxes.

"Zeca Dastro and Guidelines for the Multipurpose Territorial Cadastre available in Spanish and Portuguese, includes typical situations that employees of Brazil's municipal cadastre departments confront in their efforts to implement new land information systems that meet the demands of both the public and private sectors.

Some 5,000 copies of the colorful and engaging booklet have been distributed through Brazil, providing a simplified interpretation of Brazil's 2009 Guidelines for the Multipurpose Territorial Cadastre."

Based on its success, more comic book-style booklets are planned to educate people about property taxes and building rights.
