Tax reform : the direct path to equity and efficiency : a second submission to the Economic Planning Advisory Council from the Brotherhood of St Laurence / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1985Description: [71 p.] PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: Principles of Tax Reform. The Brotherhood recommends the following principles for tax reform. 1. Taxation is necessary and desirable. 2. Tax reform should not be equated with tax reduction and should not rule out tax increases. 3. Tax reform should lead to a tax structure that is progressive, that is, those with a higher ability to pay should pay more taxes. 4. Tax concessions should, in most cases, either be provided as direct assistance through government outlays, or be eliminated. 5. Taxation should encourage, not inhibit, employment. 6. Tax reform should be analyzed in terms of alternative reform packages, rather than as piecemeal measures. 7. Community involvement in tax reform is essential.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Taxation and social justice /

by McClelland, Alison | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: unpub. 1998Description: 13 leaves.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Anglicare Lecture, Tasmania October 1998 Replacement copy 9 September 2008Summary: Taxation reform was a key issue in the recent Federal election and before that also the subject of considerable attention by the welfare sector, the business community, the government and the media. Unfortunately the tax reform debate, especially the election debate, was far too narrow—oriented around the GST and tax cuts. There have been inflated claims about the benefits and the harm caused by the GST. Tax cuts were offered partly as compensation for the GST and partly as an election bribe—in the belief that community support for tax reform is most likely to be achieved by allowing people to pay less tax, especially less income tax, than by people paying more and in return improving the services that governments provide on behalf of us all.

Taxation, labour supply and saving . /

by Apps, Patricia | Rees, Ray.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy Research 2008Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://cepr.anu.edu.au/pdf/DP590.pdf' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:58:03 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Into & out of work INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: "In recent years, the US, UK and Australia have lowered tax rates on high incomes and expanded tax credits and family transfer payments that are withdrawn on the joint income of a couple. These reforms result in significant changes in the structure of marginal and average income tax rates. In this paper we present a case study that examines the impact of reforms of this kind on the structure of tax rates on incomes in Australia. We find that the reforms have led to high effective marginal rates across a wide middle band of earnings and to a shift towards joint taxation. As is well known, joint taxation results in high tax rates on secondary earners, with in consequence undesirable effects on both work incentive and fairness of the income distribution. A lifecycle analysis of time use and saving decisions indicates strong negative effects on female labour supply and household saving." -- Author abstract.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The case for change : a snapshot analysis of the Australian tax system

by Freebairn, John | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Scutella, Rosanna.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: 12 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: May 2008Summary: This report provides a snapshot analysis of key areas of the tax system that are the most unfair and require reform. It is not a comprehensive review of the tax system, nor does it list all of the inequities in the tax system. The report presents a number of recommendations and a range of case studies of various family types highlighting the inequities of the system. Note that in this report the focus is on federal taxes. The Brotherhood is however committed to ; reform of the entire Australian tax system, including state and local taxes, and we urge all levels of Australian government to commit to an independent review of the complete system over the longer term.Availability: Items available for loan: BSL Archives (1), Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The Design of Unemployment Transfers : Evidence from a Dynamic Structural Life-Cycle Model /

by Haan, Peter | Institute for the Study of Labor | Prowse, Victoria.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2010Description: 38 p.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2010 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: In this paper we use a dynamic structural life-cycle model to analyze the employment, fiscal and welfare effects induced by unemployment insurance. The model features a detailed specification of the tax and transfer system, including unemployment insurance benefits which depend on an individual s employment and earnings history. The model also captures the endogenous accumulation of experience which impacts on future wages, job arrivals and job separations. For better identification of the structural parameters we exploit a quasinatural experiment, namely reductions over time in the entitlement period for unemploymentinsurance benefits which varied by age and experience. The results show that a policy cut in the generosity of unemployment insurance operationalized as a reduction in the entitlementperiod generates a larger increase in employment and yields a bigger fiscal saving than a cut operationalized as a reduction in the replacement ratio. Welfare analysis of revenue neutral tax and transfer reforms also favors a reduction in the entitlement period.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
