Decline in cigarette consumption following implementation of a comprehensive tobacco prevention and education program--Oregon, 1996-1998. (1/368)

In November 1996, residents of Oregon approved a ballot measure increasing the cigarette tax by 30 cents (to 68 cents per pack). The measure stipulated that 10% of the additional tax revenue be allocated to the Oregon Health Division (OHD) to develop and implement a tobacco-use prevention program. In 1997, OHD created Oregon's Tobacco Prevention and Education Program (TPEP), a comprehensive, community-based program modeled on the successful tobacco-use prevention programs in California and Massachusetts. To assess the effects of the tax increase and TPEP in Oregon, OHD evaluated data on the number of packs of cigarettes taxed before (1993-1996) and after (1997-1998) the ballot initiative and implementation of the program. Oregon's results also were compared with national data. This report summarizes the results of the analysis, which indicate that consumption of cigarettes in Oregon declined substantially after implementation of the excise tax and TPEP and exceeded the national rate of decline.  (+info)

The impact of alternative cost recovery schemes on access and equity in Niger. (2/368)

The authors examine accessibility and the sustainability of quality health care in a rural setting under two alternative cost recovery methods, a fee-for-service method and a type of social financing (risk-sharing) strategy based on an annual tax+fee-for-service. Both methods were accompanied by similar interventions aimed at improving the quality of primary health services. Based on pilot tests of cost recovery in the non-hospital sector in Niger, the article presents results from baseline and final survey data, as well as from facility utilization, cost, and revenue data collected in two test districts and a control district. Cost recovery accompanied by quality improvements increases equity and access to health care and the type of cost recovery method used can make a difference. In Niger, higher access for women, children, and the poor resulted from the tax+fee method, than from the pure fee-for-service method. Moreover, revenue generation per capita under the tax+fee method was two times higher than under the fee-for-service method, suggesting that the prospects of sustainability were better under the social financing strategy. However, sustainability under cost recovery and improved quality depends as much on policy measures aimed at cost containment, particularly for drugs, as on specific cost recovery methods.  (+info)

Financial and organizational determinants of hospital diversification into subacute care. (3/368)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the financial, market, and organizational determinants of hospital diversification into subacute inpatient care by acute care hospitals in order to guide hospital managers in undertaking such diversification efforts. STUDY SETTING: All nongovernment, general, acute care, community hospitals that were operating during the years 1985 through 1991 (3,986 hospitals in total). DATA SOURCES: Cross-sectional, time-series data were drawn from the American Hospital Association's (AHA) Annual Survey of Hospitals, the Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA) Medicare Cost Reports, a latitude and longitude listing for all community hospital addresses, and the Area Resource File (ARF) published in 1992, which provides county level environmental variables. STUDY DESIGN: The study is longitudinal, enabling the specification of temporal patterns in conversion, causal inferences, and the treatment of right-censoring problems. The unit of analysis is the individual hospital. KEY FINDINGS: Significant differences were found in the average level of subacute care offered by investor-owned versus tax-exempt hospitals. After controlling for selection bias, financial performance, risk, size, occupancy, and other variables, IO hospitals offered 31.3 percent less subacute care than did NFP hospitals. Financial performance and risk are predictors of IO hospitals' diversification into subacute care, but not of NFP hospitals' activities in this market. Resource availability appears to expedite expansion into subacute care for both types of hospitals. CONCLUSIONS: Investment criteria and strategy differ between investor-owned and tax-exempt hospitals.  (+info)

State and federal revenues from tobacco consumed by minors. (4/368)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to estimate the value of cigarettes consumed in 1997 by youths younger than 18 years. METHODS: Price, population, and consumption data were used to compute conservative and comprehensive estimates, which were then averaged. RESULTS: An estimated 3.76 million daily smokers aged 12 through 17 years consume an estimated 924 million packs of cigarettes per year, generating $222 million in federal tax revenues, $293 million in state tax revenues, and $480 million in tobacco company profits, and producing a retail value of $1.86 billion. CONCLUSIONS: The revenues from cigarettes smoked by youths could be used to enforce laws prohibiting the sale of tobacco to minors.  (+info)

Arizona's tobacco control initiative illustrates the need for continuing oversight by tobacco control advocates. (5/368)

BACKGROUND: In 1994, Arizona voters approved Proposition 200 which increased the tobacco tax and earmarked 23% of the new revenues for tobacco education programmes. OBJECTIVE: To describe the campaign to pass Proposition 200, the legislative debate that followed the passage of the initiative, and the development and implementation of the tobacco control programme. DESIGN: This is a case study. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with key players in the initiative campaign and in the tobacco education programme, and written records (campaign material, newspapers, memoranda, public records). RESULTS: Despite opposition from the tobacco industry, Arizonans approved an increase in the tobacco tax. At the legislature, health advocates in Arizona successfully fought the tobacco industry attempts to divert the health education funds and pass preemptive legislation. The executive branch limited the scope of the programme to adolescents and pregnant women. It also prevented the programme from attacking the tobacco industry or focusing on secondhand smoke. Health advocates did not put enough pressure at the executive branch to force it to develop a comprehensive tobacco education programme. CONCLUSIONS: It is not enough for health advocates to campaign for an increase in tobacco tax and to protect the funds at the legislature. Tobacco control advocates must closely monitor the development and implementation of tax-funded tobacco education programmes at the administrative level and be willing to press the executive to implement effective programmes.  (+info)

Capital finance and ownership conversions in health care. (6/368)

This paper analyzes the for-profit transformation of health care, with emphasis on Internet start-ups, physician practice management firms, insurance plans, and hospitals at various stages in the industry life cycle. Venture capital, conglomerate diversification, publicly traded equity, convertible bonds, retained earnings, and taxable corporate debt come with forms of financial accountability that are distinct from those inherent in the capital sources available to nonprofit organizations. The pattern of for-profit conversions varies across health sectors, parallel with the relative advantages and disadvantages of for-profit and nonprofit capital sources in those sectors.  (+info)

Tax subsidies for health insurance: costs and benefits. (7/368)

The continued rise in the uninsured population has lead to considerable interest in tax-based policies to raise the level of insurance coverage. Using a detailed microsimulation model for evaluating these policies, we find that while tax subsidies could significantly increase insurance coverage, even very generous tax policies could not cover more than a sizable minority of the uninsured population. For example, a generous refundable credit that costs $13 billion per year would reduce the ranks of the uninsured by only four million persons. We also find that the efficiency of tax policies, in terms of the cost per newly insured, inevitably would fall as more of the uninsured were covered.  (+info)

The effect of marginal tax rate on the probability of employment-based insurance by risk group. (8/368)

RESEARCH OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of the tax subsidy on participation in employment-based health insurance for high- and low-risk individuals. The total exclusion of employer-paid health insurance premiums from taxable income has frequently been seen as contributing to excess insurance and hence welfare loss. However, less attention has been paid to quantifying the extent to which the tax subsidy mitigates the deleterious effects of adverse selection on the health insurance market. Adverse selection reduces pooling in an insurance market, so that high-risk individuals are either unable to obtain coverage or are forced to pay premiums that are unaffordable to all but the wealthiest. If there is an external benefit to society of an individual's purchase of medical care, then the presence of adverse selection may reduce the purchase of health care below the socially optimal level. Therefore, a mechanism for enhancing access to insurance and ultimately to medical care for high-risk individuals may be socially desirable. STUDY DESIGN: Data from the March 1996-March 1998 Current Population Survey (CPS). For each observation in the sample, state and federal income tax liability is calculated using code based on the ACIR Significant Features of Fiscal Federalism. The probability of having employment-based coverage in either one's own name or as a dependent is evaluated as a function of demographic variables such as age, education, marital status and family size, family income, type of employment, employer size, occupation, location, marginal tax rate, risk group (determined by self-assessed health status), and an interaction between risk group and tax rate. CPS data do not identify individuals who have declined offered coverage. Under alternative models of employer group decision making, the tax subsidy will have an important influence on the employer's decision to offer coverage. If offered, high-risk individuals accept coverage, while some low-risk individuals may decline coverage. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: For all individuals, the probability of having coverage is an increasing function of the marginal tax rate. Those classified as high-risk because their own or a family member's self-assessed health status is fair or poor are less likely to have coverage than those considered low-risk. The effect of the tax subsidy on insurance coverage is greater for high-risk individuals than for individuals classified as low-risk. CONCLUSIONS: These preliminary results indicate that high-risk individuals benefit from the tax subsidy by increased access to employment-based coverage. Therefore, welfare loss from excess levels of health insurance may be mitigated by welfare gain through expanded access to health insurance and hence to health care for high-risk individuals. IMPLICATIONS FOR POLICY, DELIVERY, OR PRACTICE: Elimination or reduction of the tax exclusion of health insurance premiums may have the unintended consequences of disproportionately reducing the probability of obtaining coverage in the employment-based market for high-risk individuals.  (+info)

heard from ordinary people on the radio. Everyone, it seems, claims to pay a higher federal tax rate than Mr. Romney. Typical was a person interviewed in a news report who stated I pay 28% in taxes and have trouble every month making my rent.. Listening to people comment on their own tax rates left me with two impressions. I couldnt help but feel that most, if not all, of the people I heard were severely overestimating their own effective federal tax rates, and I suspected that most people did not understand the difference between effective tax rate and marginal tax rate. I also saw an opportunity to fire up Analytica to explore the relationship between the two concepts.. Before proceeding, I should disclaim that I am not an accountant or lawyer, or in any way certified to give tax advice. Nothing I am discussing here should be construed as tax advice. Yada yada yada.. Your effective tax rate is simply the amount of tax you pay divided by your total income. Your marginal tax rate in percent ...
By the 1990s, economists had largely established that higher cigarette prices were associated with lower smoking prevalence and reduced consumption.1, 2 Since then, cigarette excise taxes have been widely proposed as a tobacco control policy tool, to encourage quitting, reduce consumption among remaining smokers, and decrease smoking initiation. This policy tool, however, included a caveat: raising cigarette prices above those from out-of-state sources creates an incentive for individual smokers to purchase cigarettes from lower or non-taxed sources-that is, individual tax avoidance3, 4-and also introduces the potential for increased crime as a result of organised smuggling. If a cigarette excise tax increase stimulates casual and organised smuggling activities, states may lose tax revenues without necessarily reducing smoking.. In 1999, California became a high profile testing ground for these potentially conflicting effects when it implemented a $0.50/pack voter approved cigarette tax ...

Several studies have examined the effects of state cigarette tax increases on youth substance use over the 1990s, with most -- but not all -- finding that higher taxes reduce youth consumption of tobacco. We advance the literature by using data from the 1991-2005 waves of the national Youth Risk Behavior Surveys (YRBS), providing information on over 100,000 high school age youths. We also are the first to make use of hundreds of independently fielded state and local versions of the YRBS, reflecting data from over 750,000 youths. Importantly, these data are to our knowledge the only sources of relevant information on youth smoking that were explicitly designed to be representative of the sampled state or locality. We estimate two-way fixed effects models of the effect of state cigarette taxes on youth smoking, controlling for survey demographics and area and year fixed effects. Our most consistent finding is that -- contrary to some recent research -- the large state tobacco tax increases of the ...

Swedens income-tax rates are among the worlds highest, but the addition of social-security contributions means that people earning this sum in Slovenia, India or Italy take home an even smaller share of their gross earnings. Slovenias government deducts almost 55% from earnings of $100,000. Social-security levies eat up a chunky 22% of earnings at that level in France, but low income taxes bring the total take, at 36%, into line with that in other rich nations. Switzerlands effective tax rate on the fairly well-off is one of the lowest in the world.. This article appeared in the Economic & financial indicators section of the print edition under the headline Effective tax rates ...
Recent legalizations of cannabis at the state level in the United States have given rise to renewed interest in the price elasticity of demand for cannabis and implications for likely state excise and sales tax revenues. We use crowdsourced data on prices, qualities, and consumption of cannabis across regional markets in the United States to estimate the price elasticity of demand for cannabis. We use distances from growing areas to the major markets as a proxy for cost variations. We obtain an estimate of the price elasticity of demand for cannabis of -0.418, which suggests that legalizing and taxing recreational cannabis use would be lucrative for government treasuries.------------------------------------Las recientes legalizaciones del cannabis a nivel estatal en los Estados Unidos han dado lugar a un renovado interés en la elasticidad en los precios de la demanda de cannabis y sus implicaciones en los ingresos por impuestos estatales y sobre ingresos por ventas.

The higher the price elasticity of demand, the lower the sensitivity of market price to shifts of the supply curve. Thus, for necessity goods (such as staple foods and, in the case of petroleum-dependent societies, petroleum products), which have a low price elasticity of demand, the market price is much more sensitive to shifts in supply. In particular, a small supply shock can cause a significant increase in price. The main explanation for this massive shift is that, because of the relative inelasticity of demand to price, the price needs to be increased significantly to induce people to cut down on demand in order to compensate for the reduction in supply. In contrast, for non-essential goods, which generally have a high price elasticity of demand, supply shifts do not generally lead to significant price changes, because small (fractional) changes in price are sufficient to induce buyers to cut back on demand. ...
Using panel data from a period of water rate reform, this paper estimates the price elasticity of irrigation water demand. Price elasticity is decomposed into the direct effect of water management and the indirect effect of water price on choice of output and irrigation technology. The model is estimated using an instrumental variables strategy to account for the endogeneity of technology and output choices in the water demand equation. Estimation results indicate that the price elasticity of ...
A definition and the formula Again, the key word is responsiveness, but this time we need to find out how responsive supply is to a given price change (rather than demand). Unsurprisingly, the formula used is very similar to the others in structure: /**/ Where: Es = The price elasticity of supply Δ = change in Qs = Quantity supplied P = Price Using the formula I do not want to dwell on this for two reasons. First, there are far fewer questions in examinations focused on the price elasticity of supply. Examiners prefer demand, where one can analyse the affects on the revenues on the firm in question (see the Learn-It on the Price elasticity of demand). Secondly, the way in which one uses this formula is exactly the same as the way in which one uses the formula for the price elasticity of demand. Try the following examples to check that you agree with me. Click on the appropriate button to reveal the answers. /**/The market price for apples rises from 50p per lb to
In contrast to traditional methods the elasticity is derived from bilateral price elasticities which relate the net share of switchers between two health insurers not only to their premium difference but also to the market share and premium of the higher priced health insurer. Our new method explains the annual variation in the Dutch market share data better than the traditional methods.. We find in the Dutch social health insurance for the period 1996-2005 rather low negative annual price elasticities ranging between 1 and 0. In that period stickiness of insurer choices was high and less than 5% of the population switched annually from health insurer. This result, however, was in sharp contrast with an exceptional high price elasticity of 7 for the year 2006, where after a major health care reform about 18% of the population switched mostly to lower priced health insurers. Besides large media coverage, one important difference with previous years was that many consumers holding an individual ...

Tuesday, July 7, 2015. The World Health Organisation has urged governments around the world to increase taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco products to save lives. Tobacco kills approximately 60 lakh people annually, 20% of them live in the South-East Asia region, including India. The region also accounts for 25% of the worlds smokers and almost 90% of smokeless tobacco users. Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, regional director, WHO South-East Asia Region, on Tuesday said stronger initiatives and focused cessation efforts were required. Improved tax measures, stronger law enforcement and enhanced cessation efforts are urgently needed in the region to protect people against the ill-effects of tobacco which continues to be a major public health issue, she said. WHO released a report on the Global Tobacco Epidemic, 2015, on Tuesday. Recent estimates show that there are about 24.6 crore smokers and 29 crore smokeless tobacco users in the region. ...

Anchorage Municipal Code (AMC) Chapter 12.40 authorizes the collection of excise tax on cigarettes and other tobacco products. The tax on cigarettes is a mill rate per cigarette and the tax on other tobacco products is a percentage of the wholesale price. The cigarette mill rate is recomputed each year, with a new rate effective on January 1. Persons who bring cigarettes and other tobacco products into the Municipality are required to register with the Treasury Division..

How Do Prices of Manufactured Cigarettes and Roll-Your-Own Tobacco Affect Demand for these Products? (Regional Study 1; 2020). In this research, price elasticities of two tobacco products MC and RYO are analysed by examining cross-country variation in prices and tobacco consumption and controlling for other relevant characteristics. Therefore, estimated elasticities are cross-country and more specifically, across s-regions within the countries studied. These elasticities indicate if differences in smoking prevalence and/or intensity depend on the differences in prices of MC and RYO..

We found that almost all licit cigarettes in Malaysia were purchased for an amount greater than the minimum price both before and after the MPL was passed. On the other hand, the overwhelming majority of illicit cigarettes were sold below the minimum price both before and after the MPL was passed. The evidence from the ITC Survey indicates that the MPL in Malaysia probably did not have a substantial impact on the prices of cigarettes. Prices of licit cigarettes rose in line with excise tax increases between waves 4 and 5, that is, during the time when the MPL was adopted, while illicit cigarette prices remained flat. We hypothesise that any observed licit cigarette price increases were at least in part attributable to specific excise tax increases and not due to the MPL, given that most licit cigarettes were above the minimum price before the policy went into effect. Our study cannot directly address this hypothesis, and we believe that further research should be conducted.. The Malaysian MPL ...
Tax increases on tobacco products that result in price increases are widely considered the single most effective intervention to reduce tobacco use. Although tobacco is addictive, users nonetheless respond to price increases by reducing the amount they consume or by quitting altogether. Because youth are particularly price-sensitive, tobacco tax increases are also effective in preventing youth from starting to smoke. Research shows that a 10% increase in price results in a 4% drop in total consumption in higher income countries and a 6-8% decline in lower income countries.. ...

This paper presents a model of optimal labor income taxation where top incomes respond to marginal tax rates through three channels: (1) standard labor supply, (2) tax avoidance, (3) compensation bargaining. We derive the optimal top tax rate formula as a function of the three corresponding behavioral elasticities. The first elasticity (labor supply) is the sole real factor limiting optimal top tax rates. The optimal tax system should be designed to minimize the second elasticity (avoidance) through tax enforcement and tax neutrality across income forms. The optimal top tax rate increases with the third elasticity (bargaining) as bargaining efforts are zero-sum in aggregate. We provide evidence using cross-country times series macro-evidence and CEO pay micro-evidence. The macro-evidence from 18 OECD countries shows that there is a strong negative correlation between top tax rates and top 1% income shares since 1960, implying that the overall elasticity is large. However, top income share ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper critically surveys the large and growing literature estimating the elasticity of taxable income with respect to marginal tax rates using tax return data. First, we provide a theoretical framework showing under what assumptions this elasticity can be used as a sufficient statistic for efficiency and optimal tax analysis. We discuss what other parameters should be estimated when the elasticity is not a sufficient statistic. Second, we discuss conceptually the key issues that arise in the empirical estimation of the elasticity of taxable income using the example of the 1993 top individual income tax rate increase in the United States to illustrate those issues. Third, we provide a critical discussion of selected empirical analyses of the elasticity of taxable income in light of the theoretical and empirical framework we laid out. Finally, we discuss avenues for future research. ( JEL H24, H31, J22)

But not every company can pull that off. A recent New York Times analysis found that for every Apple, with its 14 percent tax rate on $135 billion in earnings (that comes to a tax bill of just less than $19 billion), theres a KeyCorp, with its 150 percent effective tax rate on $1.33 billion in earnings, resulting in $1.99 billion taxes paid.

Downloadable! A conjecture of Laffer, which had considerable influence on fiscal doctrine, is that tax revenues of a Leviathan state eventually decrease when the tax rate exceeds a threshold value. We conduct a real effort experiment, in which a worker is matched with a non-working partner, to elicit the conditions under which a Laffer curve can be observed. We ran four different treatments by manipulating work opportunities and the power to tax. In the endogenous treatment, the non-working partner chooses a tax rate among the set of possibilities and receives the revenue generated by her choice and the workers effort response to this tax rate. In the exogenous treatment, the tax rate is randomly selected by the computer and the non-working partner merely receives the revenue from taxes. The Laffer curve phenomenon cannot be observed in the exogenous treatments, but arises in endogenous treatments. Tax revenues are then maximized at a 50% tax rate. We demonstrate that an efficiency tax model (with

For tobacco products produced domestically, the manufacturer is liable for taxation. Tax liabil-ity arises as soon as the products are packaged and ready for distribution to the consumer.. For imported tobacco products , the person subject to customs duty is liable for taxation. Tax liability arises at the time the products enter free circulation under customs law.. Please refer to the fact sheets on the commercial import of cigarettes, cigars, cut tobacco, and chewing tobbacco and snuff.

Elasticity of demand is mainly useful in Pricing Decisions by Business Firms. The business firms take into account the price elasticity of demand when they take decisions regarding pricing of the goods. This is because change in the price of a product will bring about a change in the quantity demanded depending upon the coefficient of price elasticity. This change in quantity demanded as a result of, say a rise in price by a firm, will affect the total consumers expenditure and will therefore, and affect the revenue of the firm. If the demand for a product of the firm happens to be elastic, then any attempt on the part of the firm to raise the price of its product will bring about a fall in its total revenue. Thus, instead of gaining from the increase in price, it will lose if the demand for its product happens to be elastic. On the other hand, if the demand for the product of a firm happens to be inelastic, then the increase in price by it will raise total revenue. Therefore, for fixing a ...

What We Did: We used manufacturing analytics to develop a pricing analysis framework to identify the impact of change in price of a product on its demand to improve promotion effectiveness for a leading food manufacturer.. The Impact We Made: With the pricing analysis framework, the client was able to design multiple trade promotions for retailers, which led to 8% increment in sales volume.. Summary - Price elasticity of demand model. Being a food manufacturer, it is imperative for the client to optimally price their products within or outside promotions to sustain demand. The client used to purchase pricing analysis from a third party vendor. This was proving to be an expensive affair and the client saw a need to have an in-house team to be able to do it accurately and in a scalable fashion. Mu sigma team enabled the client with the price elasticity exercise at brand / consumer segment level to achieve the required outcome.. About The Client - Large CPG company. The client is a leading food ...

Confused by the fight between Greg Mankiw and Brad DeLong over whether or not we should cut the corporate tax rate? Well, this is likely to confuse you even more: Steve Waldman has a great evisceration of Mankiws arguments - and then proceeds to say that cutting the corporate tax rate is a great idea, and such a tax cut should be paid for by increasing the highest marginal tax rate, or better yet, by creating a new top tax bracket. I dont get it. I have one big reason for not supporting a decrease in the corporate tax rate, which is that the bigger the gap between the corporate tax rate and the top marginal income tax rate, the more top-earning individuals will figure out a way of turning themselves into corporations. In other words, a cut in the corporate tax rate is a cut in the income tax rate, even if you hike income taxes at the same time. Do we really want a world where corporations dont have highly-paid employees, but rather outsource key managerial functions to sole proprietorships? ...

The Tobacco Free Project of the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFTFP) is one of the local lead agencies (LLAs) designated by the California State legislature through the California Department of Health, Tobacco Control Section, to create tobacco education programs and receive Proposition 99 educational moneys. Proposition 99 was a California statewide referendum passed in 1988 that raised the excise tax on tobacco sales, adding an additional 25-cent tax on each package of cigarettes and a proportional tax increase on other tobacco products. This tax raised Californias tobacco tax to be among the highest in the United States, and designated that a portion of the tax moneys would go for anti-tobacco health education projects. As an LLA, SFTFP coordinates local tobacco education activities. It serves as an oversight and regranting agency, contracting with numerous local institutions and organizations to create tobacco education and intervention programs that will reach different ...
Raising prices through taxation on tobacco and alcohol products is a common strategy to raise revenues and reduce consumption. However, taxation policies are product specific, focusing either on alcohol or tobacco products. Several studies document interactions between the price of cigarettes and general alcohol use and it is important to know whether increased cigarette prices are associated with varying alcohol drinking patterns among different population groups. To inform policymaking, this study investigates the association of state cigarette prices with smoking, and current, binge, and heavy drinking by age group. The 2001-2006 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System surveys (n = 1,323,758) were pooled and analyzed using multiple regression equations to estimate changes in smoking and drinking pattern response to an increase in cigarette price, among adults aged 18 and older. For each outcome, a multiple linear probability model was estimated which incorporated terms interacting state cigarette

Singapore is a leading example of a country that maintains low corporate income tax rates. It also introduces various tax incentives to attract and keep business and multinational global investments.. Singapore has a single-tier based flat-rate corporate income tax system. It has a territorial tax system so only Singapore derived income is taxable. The Corporate tax rate is kept at a competitive level, benchmarked and kept in line with neighbours like Hong Kong. Tax now has been reduced from 20% to just 17%. The effective rate is normally lower than this headline tax rate due to applicable tax exemptions and tax incentives and depreciation concessions.. The effective tax rate is one of the lowest in the world. The general pro-business policy of Singapore is the two important factors contributing to the economic growth and foreign direct investment into the country. This has been the policy for a long time and is unlikely to change - giving any investor confidence and certainty in the Singapore ...

Smoking is legal and lawful among adults in Maryland. If thats going to continue and be left as a personal decision among adults, then lets stop hassling and intimidating and jerking around adult smokers, Bereano said. Enough is enough.. Maryland last raised taxes on non-cigarette tobacco in 1999. Cigarette taxes have been raised several times since then, most recently by $1 a pack in January 2008.. The tobacco tax campaign comes only a few months after the Health Initiative successfully lobbied to raise the tax on alcohol in April.. DeMarco said that raising the cost of tobacco saves both lives and money. Smoking rates in Maryland declined by 32.6 percent between 1998 and 2009, which was double the national average. DeMarco said the decrease in smoking saved more than 70,000 lives and hundreds of millions of dollars in health care costs.. The current tax increase would not be the end of the campaign. Tobacco tax advocates would like Maryland to become a smoke-free state.. Bereano contended ...
1985 June/1986 March-July The Cash for Comments Economists Network was commissioned by the Tobacco Institute to write economic opinion pieces opposing excise taxes on cigarettes in mid-year-1985. This propaganda requirment resurfaced as a major project for the economist in the peak of the Tobacco Industrys PR campaign against the Packwood tax plan (although the threat was obviously still a possibility until the end of 1986r). The Tobacco institute (much later) put together a package of commissioned economics reports (see front section of document), followed by about thirty op-eds and composite pieces which were generated by the Tollison/Savarese Cash for Comments Economists Network in this 1985-86 time frame. It illustrates the propaganda value of this network -- and shows what it can accomplish in a very short time for just a few thousand dollars in academic bribes. These op-eds attacking the Packwood tax plan were all published in local newspaper across the USA. (Copies needed to be sent in ...

Chinas dependence on coal is a major contributor to local and global environmental problems. In this paper we estimate the price elasticity of demand for coal in China using a panel of province-level data for the period 1998-2012. We find evidence that provincial coal demand has become increasingly price elastic. As of 2012 we estimate that this elasticity was in the range -0.3 to -0.7 when responses over two years are considered. The results imply that Chinas coal market is becoming more suited to price-based approaches to reducing emissions. Our estimates suggest that the elimination of coal consumption subsidies could reduce national coal use and related emissions by around 2%. ...

Tax havens, by providing a safe refuge for people seeking to dodge confiscatory tax rates, have played a critical role in these positive developments. Better to get some revenue with modest tax rates, lawmakers have concluded, than impose high tax rates and lose out. Second, European duchies and Caribbean isles arent the only places that welcome tax refugees. The United States, for instance, could be considered the worlds largest tax haven. The U.S. government generally does not tax interest and capital gains received by foreigners who invest in America. And since the IRS does not collect data on those payments, there is rarely any information to share with foreign tax collectors. Moreover, U.S. corporate structures, such as Delaware and ...
Chile Tax Reform Overview. Chiles President Michelle Bachelet has sent a major tax reform bill to congress that sets out to raise corporate taxes to finance better education. It is expected to be approved by Congress with no key changes and to be enacted before September of the current year. The goal of the reform is to raise additional tax revenue equivalent to 3 percentage points of GDP during Bachelets term in office, with 2.5pp coming from tax rate changes and 0.5pp from measures to reduce tax evasion.. Harris Gomez Group has outlined some of the key areas of the tax reform bill. It is currently being debated so there will be changes as it passes through the legislative process. We will keep our clients updated over the next few months, as more information is made available.. Core structure of the tax reform: Elimination of the Taxable Profit Ledger/Fund (FUT). What does this imply?. Since 1984 Chile has embraced an integrated tax system based on the fact that the corporate tax is burden ...
The United States House of Representatives took the opposite action on tax cuts on Wednesday, rejecting a Democratic proposal championed by President Barack Obama to extend lower tax rates for middle-income Americans, and then passing a Republican plan to maintain the lower rates for a year. The vote extended a congressional stalemate over the Bush tax cuts from 2001 and 2003 that has come to symbolize legislative inaction in Washington.. Republicans in favor of minimizing government oppose any higher taxes, arguing the Democratic plan of allowing rates to increase on higher income Americans will stunt economic growth. Democrats assert Republicans are holding tax breaks hostage for the middle class, including 97 percent of small business owners, in order to keep lower tax rates for 2 percent of American taxpayers earning in excess of the $250,000 threshold. Both parties agree on extending the lower tax rates for middle income Americans, however, Democrats say Republicans are preventing that from ...
An income tax is a tax imposed on individuals or entities (taxpayers) that varies with respective income or profits (taxable income). Income tax generally is computed as the product of a tax rate times taxable income. Taxation rates may vary by type or characteristics of the taxpayer. The tax rate may increase as taxable income increases (referred to as graduated or progressive rates). The tax imposed on companies is usually known as corporate tax and is levied at a flat rate. However, individuals are taxed at various rates according to the band in which they fall. Further, the partnership firms are also taxed at flat rate. Most jurisdictions exempt locally organized charitable organizations from tax. Capital gains may be taxed at different rates than other income. Credits of various sorts may be allowed that reduce tax. Some jurisdictions impose the higher of an income tax or a tax on an alternative base or measure of income. Taxable income of taxpayers resident in the jurisdiction is generally ...

Melissa Horn, tobacco policy and government relations director at Health First Wisconsin, said the policy actions the state has taken on smuggling and cigarette taxation have proven to be effective but more resources are needed to continue combating the issue.. Our organization supports the [DOR]s investigations of any fraudulent tax stamps or sale issues across state borders, Horn said.. She said Health First Wisconsin believes the $2.52 cigarette pack tax increase has been successful and the tax has played a large role in curbing of costs associated with treatment of smoking-related illnesses and dropping Wisconsins youth smoking rates to new lows.. Although the states tax rate is one of the highest in the Midwest - second only to Minnesotas tax of $2.83 per pack -Wisconsin has the highest smuggling rate of the region, Western said.. Health First Wisconsin suggested an increase in government investment to combat smuggling of tobacco products as well as overall tobacco use, Horn ...

So no matter if you live and run your business in Rhode Island or live outside Rhode Island but have nexus there, you would charge sales tax at the rate of your buyers ship-to location..

Individual and commercial incomes are taxed whether derived in Singapore or from outside sources. Types of direct taxation include income, property, estate duty, and payroll taxes; the Inland Revenue Department is responsible for the assessment and collection of all such levies. Effective in 2002, the top marginal personal tax rate was reduced to 22% and tax bands were consolidated from 10 to 7. The first $20,000 of an individuals chargeable income is not taxed. The corporate income tax rate was reduced from 25.5% to 24.5% in 2002, and then to 22% in 2003 in line with the governments commitment to reduce the rate to 20% over a three year period. Industrial establishments, companies, and various other businesses are eligible to deduct from their gross profits varying and usually generous depreciation allowances for building, plants, and machinery. There are tax holidays of 5 to 10 years for investing in robotics and other approved pioneer industries; other tax incentives for investing in ...
In her first two years in office, Governor Janet Mills broke records with a massive spending increase of about $800 million, about an 11% spike, in her first state budget.. Late last week, two bills were released that would raise taxes on individuals and Maine small businesses. While one of the bills is certain to be framed as taxing the rich in keeping with standard liberal talking points on tax hikes, the devil is in the details. In the case of these tax increases, the details show that working Mainers, including some who earn below the median or average household income, would see their income tax rate increase by as much as 14%.. One bill, LD 495, purports to increase the progressivity of Maines tax code, but the text of the proposal shows that it would hit middle class Maine households earning between $50,000 and $100,000 per year with an income tax increase of more than 14%.. On top of that, households earning over $100,000 per year would see their income tax rate increase by 38%, ...
For instance, in Hong Kong, now under the control of Chinese Communism, the top tax rate has been reduced to 16 percent. Formerly Communist Bulgaria has a new flat tax rate of 10 percent. Formerly Communist Romania reduced its top tax rate from 40 percent to a flat tax of 16 percent.. Meanwhile, the United States, the champion of low taxes and economic freedom, has gone the other direction. It is as if we havent noticed what the rest of the world has.. Notice you dont hear Americas Democrats talking about Europe any more. They cant. Europe has abandoned the failed economics of the Democrats. In fact, many European leaders are astonished at the direction of the U.S. Its leaders are openly chastising America for its foolhardy policies of bailouts and government intervention and encouragement of debt.. ...

The teen/adult groups all showed significant (p , 0.05) changes in the adjusted incidence rate of hospitalization (AIRH) for AADs and alcoholic liver disease in 2002. Men aged 15 to 64 years showed an abrupt decline in the rate of AADs (9.1%) and in the rate of alcoholic liver disease (10.3%). A 16% reduction in the AAD rate was found in teen/adult women after the alcohol tax increase. In contrast, a 17.4% increase in the same rate was seen in the first quarter of 2010 for this group. A similar pattern was presented for the AIRH for alcoholic liver disease among women. The effect of tax intervention was not significant among the elderly. ...
Uganda is credited for carrying out extensive reforms in its tax system in the 1990s. The system of administration was overhauled together with a complete overhaul of tax legislation. The overriding objective was to increase tax revenues. Improvements were registered in the tax revenues but only temporarily. Since 2004, there has been stagnation in the tax revenue figures. The revenue from direct taxes only contributes about 20% to the total revenue well below the Sub-Saharan average of 40%. This has focused attention on the appropriateness of the reforms. The focus of the reforms on achieving efficiency did not sufficiently take into account the fundamental importance of equity within the system. As a result, the Income Tax Act 1997 embodies distortions and inequalities in the treatment of taxable income and taxpayers that have led to inefficiency in the system as a whole. The tax reforms also took a narrow technical view of the tax system. Taxation has an impact on state-building and is, ...
Chapter 6: Elasticity and Demand McGraw-Hill/Irwin Copyright © 2011 by the McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. All rights reserved. Elasticity Issue: How responsive is the demand for goods and services to changes in prices, ceteris paribus. The concept of price elasticity of demand is useful here. Price elasticity of demand Let price elasticity of demand (EP) be given by: % change in Q EP = % change in P  Q / Q 0 P / P 0  (Q 1  Q 0 ) / Q 0 ( P1  P 0) / P 0 [1] Price A 240 235 0 B 100 P = 290 - Q/2 110 Output Question: What is EP in the range of demand curve between prices of $240 to $235? To find out: Ep  (110 100 ) / 100 ( 235  240 ) / 240  10 %  2 .1 %   4 .8 Meaning, a 1% increase in prices will result in a 4.8% decrease in quantity-demanded (and viceversa). Point elasticity In our previous example we computed the elasticity for a certain segment of the demand curve (point A to B). For purposes of marginal analysis, we are interested in point elasticity- ...

Trenton, NJ: Super-majorities of the New Jersey Assembly and Senate decided on Monday to place a marijuana legalization ballot question before voters in 2020.. Commenting on the legislative action, Garden State NORML Executive Director Charlana McKeithen said: We support any move beyond prohibition. Now marijuana consumers and anyone who supports reform can cast a vote for freedom. The question will appear as a constitutional amendment on the November election ballot. Senators voted 24 to 16 in favor of the effort, while members of the Assembly voted 49 to 24. State law requires that three-fifths of lawmakers in both chambers approve a resolution to place an amendment on the ballot. The ballot question will read: Do you approve amending the Constitution to legalize a controlled form of marijuana called cannabis? Only adults at least 21 years of age could use cannabis. The State commission created to oversee the States medical cannabis program would also oversee the new, personal use ...
A Michigan state Court of Claims ruling on Friday held that absentee ballots must be counted as long as they were postmarked by November 2 and received within fourteen days. The case was brought by a group of Plaintiffs including the Michigan Alliance for Retired Americans.. The plaintiffs requested injunctive relief in three different issues. First, on the limitation that required ballots to arrive by 8 pm on election day or not be counted. Second, they requested an expansion of voter assistant so that more people may be able to help a voter return their absentee ballot. Finally, they requested that the state provide return postage. In examining the extensive number of affidavits and documents presented as evidence of their claims, the court found that mail delivery has become significantly compromised, and the risk for disenfranchisement when a voter returns an absent voter ballot by mail is very real.. Judge Stephens also found that largely unrefuted expert testimony . . . consistently ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Evaluating Fuel Tax Revenue Impacts of Electric Vehicle Adoption in Virginia Counties. T2 - Application of a Bivariate Linear Mixed Count Model. AU - Jia, Wenjian. AU - Jiang, Zhiqiu. AU - Chen, T. Donna. AU - Paleti, Rajesh. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Increasing electric vehicle (EV) shares and fuel economy pose challenges to a fuel tax-based transportation funding scheme. This paper evaluates such fuel tax revenue impacts using Virginia as a case study. First, a bivariate count model is developed using vehicle registration data in 132 counties from 2012 to 2016. Model results indicate strong correlation between presence of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) on a county basis. Counties with higher percent of males are associated with higher BEV (but not PHEV) counts. In contrast, higher average commute time is predicted to increase the number of PHEVs in each county, but not BEVs. Greater population density, population over 65, ...
Asthe Chancellor freezes the real price of 20 cigarettes, ASH attacked the reversal of tax policy asshameless electioneering, which would soon show up in increasedteenage smoking, help to fill the cancer wards and burden the NHS. Teenage smoking has fallen sharply since1996 as the Chancellor has added over a pound to the price of 20 cigarettes. Teenage smoking has fallen sharply since1996 when Brown introduced a 5% per year escalator - from 33% among 15 year-oldgirls in 1996 to 25% in 1999 [,ahref=http: html= smuggling= tax2001.html#_toc507230487″=,1].. ASHestimates the failure to introduce the previous policy of a 5% tax rise will,over the long term, mean 1300 more people per year die from a grisly death bycancer, heart disease or respiratory illness caused by smoking - about half thetotal that die each year on the roads.. CliveBates, Director of ASH said:. The freeze in taxes is basically quite shamelessbut predictable electioneering. Theyare sacrificing long-term ...
After spending months on plans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Congressional Republicans and the Administration are beginning to pivot to a more unified effort around comprehensive tax reform.. House and Senate Republicans are expected to spend much of the August recess period talking about tax reform with their constituents back home, and the White House will follow suit later this month with President Trump expected to meet leaders of industry and taxpayers throughout the country at events designed to take the tax reform conversation outside of the beltway.. On July 27, House and Senate leaders and the White House issued a joint statement on tax reform, outlining a number of core narrative principles as the effort moves forward. While not rich in detail, the statement called for a pro-growth plan that eliminates much of the complexity in the current tax code and lowers rates for individuals and corporations.. The timing and path forward on tax reform legislation remains unclear. ...
The federal income tax rates for 2015 are the same as last year: 10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33%, 35%, and 39.6%. However, the rate bracket beginning and ending points are increased slightly to account for inflation. For 2015, the maximum 39.6% bracket affects singles with taxable income above $413,200, married joint-filing couples with income above $464,850, heads of households with income above $439,000, and married individuals who file separate returns with income above $232,425. Higher-income individuals can also get hit by the 0.9% additional Medicare tax on wages and self-employment income and the 3.8% net investment income tax (NIIT), which can both result in a higher-than-advertised marginal federal income tax rate for 2015.. What weve listed below are a few money-saving ideas to get you started that you may want to put in action before the end of 2015:. • For 2015, the standard deduction is $12,600 for married taxpayers filing joint returns. For single taxpayers, the amount is $6,300. If ...
