Tax by design : the Mirrlees review by Institute for Fiscal Studies (Great Britain)( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the findings of a commission chaired by James Mirrlees, this volume presents a picture of tax reform whose aim is to identify the characteristics of a good tax system for any open developed economy, assess the extent to which the UK tax system conforms to these ideals, and recommend how it might be reformed in that direction
Supporting families : the financial costs and benefits of children since 1975 by Stuart Adam( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a comprehensive, quantitative analysis of trends in child-contingent support from the mid 1970s to the introduction of the new tax credits, and relates this to changes in tax and benefit policy, the characteristics of households withchildren, and the costs of raising children

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

35 years of reforms : a panel analysis of the incidence of, and employee and employer responses to, social security contributions in the UK by Stuart Adam( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We exploit variation in National Insurance contributions (NICs) - the UK's system of social security contributions - and a large panel dataset to examine the effects of 35 years of employee and employer NICs reforms on labour cost (gross earnings plus employer NICs), hours of work and labour cost per hour, both immediately (0-6 months) after reforms are implemented and in the slightly longer term (12-18 months). We consider assumptions under which the estimated coefficients on net-of-marginal and net-of-average tax rates in a panel regression can be interpreted as behavioural elasticities or as reflecting incidence. We find a compensated elasticity of taxable earnings with respect to the marginal rate of employee NICs of about 0.2-0.3, operating largely through hours of work, while that with respect to the marginal rate of employer NICs is not statistically significantly different from zero. We also find that labour cost falls by a much larger amount when the average rate of employer NICs is reduced than when the average rate of employee NICs is reduced, which is consistent with the economic incidence of NICs being strongly affected by its formal legal incidence. Estimates from the hours and hourly labour cost regressions provide further support to this interpretation of the findings, and also suggest the presence of substantial income effects - though also, after 1999, a puzzling effect of average employer NICs rates on hours of work. Each of these results remains true after 12-18 months (if anything, coefficients on lagged changes in NICs rates strengthen these findings), implying that any shifting of employer NICs changes to the individual employees concerned (and vice versa for employee NICs) does not begin over this time horizon. These results are similar to those found by Lehmann et al. (2013) for France but represent an extension of that work by considering hours as well as labour cost responses and second-year as well as immediate effects
Dimensions of tax design : the Mirrlees review by James A Mirrlees( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of the Mirrlees Review has been to identify what makes a good tax system for an open developed economy in the 21st century and to suggest how the UK tax system could be reformed to move in that direction. As an integral part of the Review, this volume brings together thirteen studies of different dimensions of tax design, plus associated commentaries. These were commissioned from IFS researchers and other international experts, to be of interest and value in their own right, as well as to provide inspiration for the final report of the Review, which is published as a separate volume, Tax by Design

Diseño de un sistema tributario óptimo : informe Mirrlees by James A Mirrlees( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sucesor del Informe Meade, pero más ambicioso en cuanto que Meade se centró, fundamentalmente, en los impuestos directos, mientras que el Informe Mirrless examina todo el sistema impositivo, desde la idea de que es necesario mirar al sistema impositivo como un todo. Aunque este informe se refiere al Reino Unido, los autores han intentado que sus conclusiones sean relevantes internacionalmente
The benefits of parenting : government financial support for families with children since 1975 by Stuart Adam( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Description of the changes to the structure of child-contingent support through the tax and benefit system since 1975, presenting new results, which were produced to quantify explicitly the amount of government support for families with children, using representative samples of families from over the past three decades
Dynamic scoring by Stuart Adam( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dynamic scoring - taking full account of all the economic effects of policies when estimating their budgetary effects - is almost self-evidently attractive. But it is formidably difficult to achieve. This paper assesses the key conceptual and practical challenges it poses and considers the pros and cons of adopting it. The objective should be to provide more useful information while being robust to the political debate
The correctional cost of serviced and unserviced juvenile gangs : an evaluation of a detached worker program by Roger E Rice( Book )

Reforming Council Tax Benefit by Stuart Adam( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The UK government is proposing to localise support for council tax from 2013-2014, abolishing council tax benefits (CTB) across Britain and giving grants to local authorities in England and to the Scottish and Welsh governments to design their own systems for providing support for council tax to low-income families. This study examines the likely effects of this policy: localisation will strengthen local authorities' incentives to promote employment and growth, but will also give them an incentive to discourage low-income families from living in the area, and a disincentive to encourage take-up of support; total funding from central government is due to fall by 10 per cent; the government plans to give each local authority a grant based on 90 per cent of what would have been spent on CTB in that area; since almost half of CTB goes to the lowest-income fifth of households, it is unsurprising that all the options analysed would hit poor households hardest
