Using the Discrete Model to Derive Optimal Income Tax Rates
Uppsala University.
2013 (English)Report (Other academic)Text
Abstract [en]

In this paper I perform numerical simulations of the discrete model of optimal income taxation employing a large number of taxpayer types. Moreover, I indicate how the results depend on the number of types used to represent the wage distribution. Finally, I compare simulations of the continuous and discrete optimal tax models under identical circumstances based on US wage data.
