EVALUATING FUEL TAX EQUITY: DIRECT AND INDIRECT DISTRIBUTIONAL EFFECTS STEPHEN D. CASLER* & AISHA RAFIQUI* A recent proposal by the Clinton adminis- tration calls for a general tax on all energy products. Along with raising revenue, such a tax has the desirable effects of conserv-. Fuel Taxes and the Poor challenges the conventional wisdom that gasoline taxation, an important and much-debated instrument of climate policy, has a disproportionately detrimental effect on poor people. Increased fuel taxes carry the potential to mitigate carbon emissions, reduce congestion, and improve local urban environment.
The net distributional effect will depend on the magnitude of these indirect effects and how these indirect effects are distributed across households, such as how the extra revenue is spent. General equilibrium approaches allow for all commodity demand and factor supply responses and thus incorporate both the direct and indirect welfare effects. Abstract. The European Commission’s proposals 2 for a carbon tax would levy a substantial new tax on fossil fuels in proportion to their carbon and energy content, as part of the Community’s strategy to tackle the environmental problem of global warming. Whilst the proposals made in autumn leave many details still to be worked out, especially those concerning how the tax will be.

The Distributional Effects of Consumption Taxes in OECD Countries The report examines the distributional effects of value-added tax (VAT) and excise tax systems in 20 OECD countries, and investigates the effectiveness of reduced VAT rates as a redistributional tool.
(OECD) featuring its books, papers and statistics and is the knowledge base. Indirect taxes are levied on commodities. They fall heavily on the lower and middle-income groups who spend a large portion of their income on commodities.
In such a situation, indirect taxes have adverse distributional effects. However, indirect taxes may be made progressive if the necessaries are exempted from taxation or levied on low tax.
The total effect on households of such taxes is assessed using input–output analysis. Thus both the direct effect of taxes, through increased fuel prices, and the indirect effect, through increased prices of other goods, can be assessed simultaneously.
the other hand, the indirect effects of policies via their incidence on intermediate inputs can attenuate or exacerbate the direct distributional impacts arising from the impacts on the targeted good (e.g. a carbon tax would affect prices faced by households both directly for.
