    Abstract

    In a policy of revenue substitution, the State of New York could increase tax system efficiency while improving environmental quality. Revenue from a state environmental tax on chemical emissions could be used to eliminate pre-existing taxes on business activity. This paper simulates policy implementation and concludes that, in addition to simplifying the state tax code, the revenue-neutral regulation could improve environmental quality, provide a market-based incentive for pollution abatement and maintain the size of the public sector.
