Cleveland officials say the jury's out on the future of residential tax abatements. But, it looks like one segment of the jury just came back... "What makes Cleveland attractive is that because of the abatement people can buy more house for their money than they can any place else." That's one of the authors of a new study on abatements requested by the city. We'll hear from him Wednesday morning on The Sound of Ideas. We'll find out how Cleveland and the region have benefited from people not paying taxes, and we'll examine pitfalls that still exist.
