    Financing is one of the areas of Basic Income defined as an income paid by the State to each full member or accredited resident of a society, regardless of whether he or she wishes to engage in paid employment, or is rich or poor or, in other words, independently of what any other sources of income might be, and irrespective of cohabitation arrangements in the domestic sphere research where most progress has been made in the last ten or twelve years and interesting work has been done with different geographic zones in mind, showing how Basic Income can be paid by several kinds of public institutions. The present research is based on a micro-simulation program that was applied to a database compiled from a sample of 110,474 tax declarations in Catalonia in order to evaluate different policy options for tax-benefit integration, which would include a Basic Income. The study demonstrates that the proposal is viable in economic terms and that the impact of the distribution of income would be highly progressive. With due database changes and adjustments according to the fiscal reality of each place, the measure can be applied in many countries.
