BACKGROUND

As soon as the new Austrian government presents reform details for tax-benefit policies for the period 2017-2022 in December, we will analyse the distributional impact of the envisaged tax-benefit reforms. With our expertise in tax-/benefit microsimulation modelling, using the Austrian EUROMOD module and the SORESI model, we seek to provide an in-depth analysis of the budgetary and distributional consequences of the envisaged reforms. We will look at the effect of the policy changes both at the household (incl. at-risk-of poverty rates) and individual level. This project is financed by the Vienna Chamber of Labour.
