Tax and Social Contribution Payments by Type of Income

This project focuses on the question of the extent to which the different types of income of private households (including income from employment and self-employment, public pensions, income from capital) contribute to the revenue from direct taxes (social contributions, income and capital gains tax) and indirect taxes (sales and excise duties). The analysis is based on the integrated microdata set of the last WIFO redistribution study, which contains the latest available data for a joint consideration of income and consumption or direct and indirect taxes at the micro level with the 2019 study year.
