Smoking: Taxing Health and Social Security: A Reprint from the “Economic Review”
Brian S. Armour (au); M. Melinda Pitts (au)
Cigarette smoking is costly in terms of not only its effects on smokers’ health but also the direct & indirect financial costs it imposes on smokers & their families. For ex., premature death caused by smoking may redistribute Social Security (SS) income in unexpected ways that affect behavior & reduce the economic well-being of smokers’ dependents. This article examines the effects of smoking-attributable mortality on the net marginal SS tax rate (NMSSTR) -- the difference between the statutory payroll tax rate & the present value of future benefits to which a covered worker is entitled. Smokers, as a result of shorter life expect., incur a higher NMSSTR than nonsmokers. Charts & tables.
