Les mesures fiscales d'incitation au travail des personnes non qualifiées

Listed author(s):
  • Hélène Périvier

This article presents the poverty, inactivity and unemployment traps. Then it proposes an overview of uses of taxation in European countries in order to tackle them. It specifically focuses on tax credits. The « Prime pour l?emploi », a refunded tax credit implemented in France in 2001, deals with this general strategy of ?making work pay? and encourage people to work. The United States have been developing the earned income tax credit since the 90s. Similarly, the United Kingdom have follow in 1999 this way in making use of the working family tax credit. The French tax credit is unlikely to have the same effects on labour supply than the two others. Firstly because the program is smaller and secondly because the economic situation, and specially the labour market statement, has nothing to do with the Anglo-Saxons? one. JEL Codes : D31, H 24, H 31, J22.
