Carbon Tax: Deficit Reduction and Other Considerations
Jonathan L. Ramseur (au); Jane A. Leggett (au); Molly F. Sherlock (au)
Policymakers have considered a number of options for raising additional federal revenues, including a carbon tax. A carbon tax could apply directly to carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, or to the inputs (e.g., fossil fuels) that lead to the emissions. Unlike a tax on the energy content of each fuel (e.g., Btu tax), a carbon tax would vary with a fueläó»s carbon content, as there is a direct correlation between a fueläó»s carbon content and its CO2 emissions. Carbon taxes have been proposed for many years by economists and some Members of Congress, including in the 112th Congress. If Congress were to establish a carbon tax, policymakers would face several implementation decisions, including the point and rate of taxation. Although the point of taxation does not necessarily reveal who bears the cost of the tax, this decision involves trade-offs, such as comprehensiveness versus administrative complexity. This report examines the carbon tax an an option for raising addiitonal federal revenues. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
