Abstract

This paper presents a discrete choice static neo-classical labor supply model for married or cohabiting couples in the Netherlands. The model simultaneously explains the participation decision and the desired number of hours worked. Due to its discrete nature, institutional details of the tax system can be fully incorporated. The model is estimated using Dutch cross-section data. The results are used to simulate the first order labor supply effects of several proposed reforms of the Dutch income tax system. In particular, it is shown that some of the proposed reforms would have a negative effect on the number of married females who prefer a small part-time job. This pitfall is avoided in the proposal that has gone to Parliament.
