Effective Marginal Tax Rates for Low- and Moderate-Income Workers
Shannon Mok (au)
The effective marginal tax rate is the percentage of an additional dollar of earnings that is unavailable to a worker because it is paid in taxes or offset by reductions in benefits from government programs. In part, such rates are determined by income and payroll tax rates and other features of the tax system, such as tax credits and deductions that depend on earnings. However, effective marginal tax rates are also determined by programs providing cash and in-kind benefits, referred to as transfers, that target assistance to people of reduced means. Because increases in earnings for low- and moderate-income workers can cause relatively large reductions in such assistance, this analysis of effective marginal tax rates (hereafter referred to as marginal tax rates) focuses on those workers. As this report shows, those rates affect peopleńˇ╗s incentives to work: All else being equal, people tend to work fewer hours when marginal tax rates are high. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
