Published in DISCUSSION PAPERS

D. Papageorgiou, T. Efthimiadis, I. Konstantakopoulou. 2012.

 

This study estimates the effective tax rates for various sources of income for Greece. The results show that the effective tax rates on income from capital and self-employment, as well as on consumption, are lower in Greece than in the other Euro Area countries. Furthermore, based on the results, specific tax policy changes are proposed. The proposals aim at contributing to the fiscal consolidation of Greece through increasing tax revenues in a growth-friendly manner.
