Tax Models and their Uses


  • Creedy, J.


Tax models come in all shapes and sizes, depending on the nature of the policy issues examined. The policy questions may relate to specific problems, concerning perhaps the revenue implications of a particular tax, or they may involve an extensive analysis of the cost and redistributice effects of a large number of taxes and transfer payments. The aim of this paper is to provide an informal review of several alternative approaches to tax modelling.
