FairTax Mikrosimulationen

A microsimulation analysis (EUROMOD) evaluates the distributional and revenue effects of tax policies suitable for decreasing income inequality and promoting gender equity. The analysis encompasses the impact of joint and family-based tax and benefit provisions in personal tax systems within selected EU countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Sweden, UK). It focusses on the effects on different household types and secondary earners considering the heterogeneity of welfare state regimes via a cross-country comparison.
