Tax Policy

 

Tax policy is the government's approach to taxation, both from the practical and normative side of the question.

 

Policymakers debate the nature of the tax structure they plan to implement (i.e., how progressive or regressive) and how they might affect individuals and businesses (i.e., tax incidence).
