Contents:
Behavioral Simulation Methods in Tax Policy Analysis; Contents; Preface; Introduction; 1. Alternative Tax Treatments of the Family: Simulation Methodology and Results; 2. Stochastic Problems in the Simulation of Labor Supply; 3. Alternatives to the Current Maximum Tax on Earned Income; 4. The Distribution of Gains and Losses from Changes in the Tax Treatment of Housing; 5. Simulating Nonlinear Tax Rules and Nonstandard Behavior: An Application to the Tax Treatment of Charitable Contributions
Summary: These thirteen papers and accompanying commentaries are the first fruits of an ongoing research project that has concentrated on developing simulation models that incorporate the behavioral responses of individuals and businesses to alternative tax rules and rates and on expanding computational general equilibrium models that analyze the long-run effects of changes on the economy as a whole. The principal focus of the project has been on the microsimulation of individual behavior. Thus, this volume includes studies of individual responses to an over reduction in tax rates and to changes in the.
