Time-Series Modelling of Daily Tax Revenues
This paper discusses a time-series model for daily tax revenues. The model is an unobserved-components model with trend and seasonal components that vary over time. The seasonalities for inter-month and intra-month movements are modelled using stochastic cubic splines. The model is made operational and used to produce daily forecasts at the Dutch Ministry of Finance. A front-end for model configuration and data input is implemented with Visual C ++, while the econometrics and graphical diagnostics are build around Ox and SsfPack, the latter of which implements general procedures for the Kalman filter and state-space models.
