Modelling Aggregate Personal Income Tax Revenue in Multi-Schedular and Multi-Regional Structures


  • John Creedy
  • Jose Felix Sanz-Sanz


This paper derives analytical expressions for aggregate personal income tax revenue obtained from a multi-schedular and multi-regional personal income tax system, with revenue divided among central and regional governments. Aggregate income tax revenue is expressed as a function of characteristics of the distribution of taxable income, making it possible to identify the sources of revenue differences among regions. The approach is applied to the tax structure in Spain, and the effects of income distribution differences among the Spanish regions is examined.
