personal income tax. Both reforms generate a welfare gain, but the gain is substantially larger with the uniform VAT compared to the differentiated VAT system.1 We measure the welfare effects of the different tax reforms as deviations from a baseline scenario with a pre-reform non-uniform VAT system (including the investment tax). Tax harmonization is generally understood as a process of adjusting tax systems of different jurisdictions in the pursuit of a common policy objective. Tax harmonization involves the removal of tax distortions affecting commodity and factor movements in order to bring about a more efficient allocation of resources within an integrated market. Tax harmonization may serve alternative goals, such.

  Welfare economics is the study of how the structure of markets and the allocation of economic goods and resources determines the overall well-being of society. The model is used to assess the potential effects of the European harmonization of capital income taxes. The results show that this policy, if enacted along the lines followed in harmonizing value-added taxes, yields large capital outflows and a significant erosion of tax revenue for Continental Europe while the opposite effects benefit the.

The paper will first examine the economic effects of an export tax on commodity prices and the volume of exports. This section will also show how welfare is redistributed among foreign and domestic consumers, producers and the government as a consequence of an export tax, and it will distinguish between short-term and long-term effects. Taxes and subsidies change the price of goods and, as a result, the quantity consumed. There is a difference between an Ad valorem tax and a specific tax or subsidy in the way how it is applied on the price of the good. The final effect stays similar though. In the end levying a tax moves the market to a new equilibrium where the price of a good paid by buyers increases and the price received.

The paper considers the welfare effect of the harmonisation of indirect taxes in two open economies. The revenue from taxation is used for the production of a non-tradeable public good.

1. Introduction. Some of the Welfare effects of commodity tax harmonisation book in the recent literature on multilateral tax reform have focused on the welfare effects of indirect tax harmonization policies (Keen,Lockwood, Keen, Turunen-Red and Woodland, Keen and Lahiri, Kanbur and Keen, Lopez-Garcia, ).The models underlying these contributions usually assume that tax revenue is Cited by: Second, the paper examines the ramifications of partial tax harmonization policies.

It shows that harmonizing commodity taxes above their unrestricted Nash equilibrium value may either increase. Thus, tax harmonisation is likely to affect public good provision in all countries. 2 The welfare effects of tax harmonisation will thus depend both on the preferences for public goods and on the technological relations between public and private sectors in each country.

After the publication of the "White Paper" () on the completion of the internal European market, an intense and heated debate about tax impediments to free trade set in. This paper discusses whether some propositions concerning the effects of indirect tax harmonization that have been derived when taxes are levied on a destination basis and revenue is returned to the individuals as a lump-sum transfer can, when accurately reformulated, be extended to a framework where commodities are taxed according to the origin principle and the governments use their revenue to.

This paper, within a general equilibrium model of international trade with endogenous pollution discharges, identifies instances in which pollution-tax harmonization can deliver potential Pareto improvements.

This paper shows that under imperfect competition, the welfare effects of indirect tax harmonization may depend crucially on whether taxes are levied by the destination or the origin principle.
