Study: Information about intensified tax enforcement increases rental income tax reporting

Study: Information about intensified tax enforcement increases rental income tax reporting

A study by VATT Institute for Economic Research (VATT), Labour Institute for Economic Research (PT) and Finnish Tax Administration provides evidence that some landlords in Finland fail to declare rental income correctly. Reporting behaviour can be influenced by providing information about tax reporting and enforcement practices. The strongest effect was obtained when notifying potential landlords of the use of third-party information in tax enforcement.

Study: electronic prescribing can increase medication overuse

Study: electronic prescribing can increase medication overuse

Electronic prescribing (e-prescribing) improves medication access by making it easier for patients to order repeat medication. A new study from researchers at the VATT Institute for Economic Research, University of Jyväskylä, University of Turku, and University of Pennsylvania, shows that e-prescribing increases the use of repeat medication but potentially also promotes prescription drug abuse, especially among younger adults.

Small municipalities use central government transfers effectively to support their only general upper secondary school

Small municipalities use central government transfers effectively to support their only general upper secondary school

According to a study by VATT Institute for Economic Research, the increased coefficient included in the central government transfer system to support small general upper secondary schools is an effective and clearly targeted policy measure. However, there are still differences between municipalities: higher share of pensioners is associated with municipalities directing less funding to general upper secondary education.
