Tax Reform and Tax Yield in Malawi
AbstractThe problem of this study is to evaluate tax reforms as instruments for raising tax yield in Malawi. The study tests two hypotheses: that the yield of the tax system as a whole, of its major components and of individual taxes, is not buoyant; and that the yield of the tax system as a whole, of its major components and of individual taxes is not income elastic. In order to test these hypotheses, two sets of regression equations were estimated.
