BACKGROUND

EUROMOD is a tax-benefit microsimulation model for the European Union (EU) that enables researchers and policy analysts to calculate the effects of taxes and benefits on household incomes and work incentives for the population of each Member State and for the EU as a whole. The EUROMOD-JRC web interface is an online tool that provides a simplified access to the tax-benefit microsimulation model EUROMOD. It allows users to implement simple tax reforms and analyse their fiscal and distributional effects.

AIMS

The project aim is to populate and update the parameters of the EUROMOD-JRC interface for 27 EU-countries. Additionally, the model will be adjusted in such a way that users will be able to add additional tax-brackets and adjust relevant tax credits and tax allowances.

METHODS
