A Two-Dimensional Criterion for Tax Policy Evaluation. A Primer from the Reform of Personal Income Taxation in Russia
The comparison of different tax schedules is a problem of high dimensionality. In the current paper it is proved that under very general assumptions a utilitarian welfare function and an inequality index compose a sufficient statistic for the after-tax welfare distribution, reducing significantly the dimensionality of the decision problem. The criterion was used to compare tax schedules before and after the reform of the Personal Income Tax and social taxation in Russian Federation.
