Radikale Steuerreform in Deutschland?
AbstractDespite several income tax rate reductions in Germany, tax reform measures are proposed by several parties and by specific research groups. The intention is to lower marginal income tax rates substantially and at the same time to reduce or even to abolish tax expenditures. The major proposals are discussed and evaluated by means of efficiency criteria. Realizing e.g. the proposal of the German Council of Economic Advisors would increase efficiency significantly. However, due to the resistance by different interest groups radical reform measures are not probable.
