The empirical results indicate, across estimation methods and specifications, that the determinants of optimal taxation over estimation of Laffer curve are tax-rate, tax-rate 2 and debt negatively. Using the self-selection approach to tax analysis within an OLG framework, the paper examines optimal non-linear labour and capital income taxation and the provision of a durable public good.

Above this threshold, the solidarity surcharge rate increases with a rate of 20% until it reaches % when the annual income tax is €1, (€2, for married couples). For example, if €10, income tax result from a certain annual taxable income, a solidarity surcharge of € will be levied on top. quasi-separability-are extensively explored. Section 2 derives the optimal tax formulae for each framework in a common format and the implications of separability are discussed. In the case which is analytically the most difficult, the model with many consumers, a linear income tax .

For example, while in many developing countries an income tax that relies on self-reporting cannot be administered at all, in a developed country the question is to what extent optimal tax design should reflect the reality of evasion, the necessity of enforcement, and the costs of collection.

Chapter 3 provides the most direct application of results on optimal linear income taxation. Linear income tax is the simplest redistributive programme that the government is likely to consider employing. In the linear income tax system, the tax is characterized by a lump-sum income or a basic income paid to each individual and a proportional tax on each euro earned at a rate t (the flat rate).

Downloadable (with restrictions). Based on numerical simulations there seems to be a kind of consensus in the optimal tax literature that the marginal tax rate should fall rather than rise with income.

Retaining the same formal structure as in Mirrlees () this paper shows that this consensus is sensitive to a choice of the assumed form of utility of consumption. Properties of the optimal income tax for quasi‐linear in leisure preferences are studied. With utilitarian or maxi‐min objectives, closed‐form solutions are obtained.

The rst implication of the linearity in consumption is that the welfare weights in the reduced form are not a function of the. However, in the context of our stylized model, between 66 and 91% of the gains of a fully nonlinear optimal income tax (over a linear income tax) can be captured by a four-bracket piecewise linear income tax, depending on the choice of social welfare function, and even with a two-bracket piecewise linear tax one could capture between 59 and 86%.

In this paper, we present a model that enables us to calculate the optimal income tax rate, given a specific utility function from leisure and consumption of private and public goods. The main contribution of our paper is presenting a new approach for determining the optimal tax rate: instead of focusing on the social planner’s point of view, we focus on the private agent’s point of view.

This paper revisits the optimal distribution of income model in Fair (). This model is the same as in Mirrlees () except that education is also a decision variable and tax rates are restricted to lie on a tax function. In the current paper the tax-rate restriction is relaxed. As in Fair (), a numerical method is used.

The current method uses the DFP algorithm with numeric derivatives.Optimality conditions and comparative static properties of non-linear income taxes revisited. By Laurent Simula. Abstract. Optimality conditions and comparative static properties of the optimal Mirrleesian nonlinear income tax are obtained for a finite population and quasilinear-in-consumption preferences.

Contrary to Weymark () who.Competitive Nonlinear Income Taxation Revisited One of the important extensions of the original Mirrlees model of optimal income taxation has been to include migration responses to changes in the tax schedule. Indeed, Mirrlees provided one of the early their optimal income tax policy, given exogenous public expenditures.
