Impacts of the tax credit for household expenses on employment and the grey economy

Date of project : 2020 - 2023

The aim of the research project is to produce versatile new information on the impacts of the tax credit for household expenses.


The main objective of the project is to analyse the impacts of the credit on consumer prices, the demand for services, and the employment rates of companies that provide services. The project also aims to analyse how the credit impacts the prevalence of the grey economy as well as its age, gender and income distribution-related impacts. The results of the project will provide information on how the tax system can be made fairer and more efficient for all taxpayers.
