  • 8. 1-8 How to calculate a Tax?  To calculate a tax, a taxpayer must know:  Tax Rate: level of taxes imposed on the tax base and is usually expressed as a percentage  Tax Base: defines what is actually taxed and is usually expressed in monetary terms Tax = Tax Base * Tax Rate
  • 9. 1-9 Different ways to measure tax rates  Marginal Tax Rate: the tax rate that applies to the next additional increment of a taxpayer’s taxable income.  Average Tax Rate: the taxpayer’s average level of taxation on each dollar of taxable income.  Effective Tax Rate: the taxpayer’s average rate of taxation on each dollar of total income (both taxable and non-taxable)
  • 10. 1-10 Tax Rates Example  Bill and Mercedes have $160,000 of taxable income and additional $10,000 of nontaxable income. Using the 2013 married-joint tax rates, what is their tax due, average tax rate, and effective tax rate? If they receive an additional $80,000 of taxable income, what is their marginal tax rate on this income?
  • 11. 1-11 Tax Rates Solution  Tax Due = $32,265.50, computed as: $32,265.50 = $28,457.50 + 28% x ($160,000 - $146,400)  Average tax rate: 20.17% ($32,265.50 /160,000)  Effective tax rate: 18.98% ($32,265.50 /170,000)  Marginal tax rate: 29.06% ($55,513 - $32,265.50 )/ ($240,000 - $160,000)
  • 12. 1-12 Tax Rate Structures  Proportional Tax Rate (Flat Tax): imposes a constant tax rate throughout the tax base.  Progressive Tax Rate: imposes an increasing marginal tax rate as the tax base increases.  Regressive Tax Rate: imposes a decreasing marginal tax rate as the tax base increases.

  • 15. 1-15 Types of Taxes  Federal Taxes:  Income taxes  Employment and unemployment taxes  Excise taxes  Transfer taxes  State and local taxes:  Sales and use taxes  Property taxes  Income taxes  Excise taxes  Implicit taxes
  • 16. 1-16 Federal Taxes  Income taxes  Represents approximately 55.3% of all tax revenues collected in the United States (Individuals 47.4% and Corporations 7.9%)  Levied on individuals, corporations, estates, and trusts  Employment and Unemployment taxes  Second largest group of taxes imposed by the U.S. government  Employment taxes include the OASDI (Social Security tax), and the MHI tax (Medicare tax)  Unemployment taxes fund temporary unemployment benefits for individuals terminated from their jobs without cause
  • 17. 1-17 Federal Taxes  Excise taxes  Third largest group of taxes imposed by the U.S. government  levied on the quantity of products sold  Estate and Gift taxes  levied on the fair market values of wealth transfers upon death or by gift
  • 18. 1-18 State and Local Taxes  Sales and Use taxes  Tax base for a sales tax is the retail sales of goods and some services  Tax base for the use tax is the retail price of goods owned, possessed or consumed within a state that were not purchased within the state  Property taxes  Property taxes are ad valorem taxes, meaning that the tax base for each is the fair market value of the property  Real property taxes consists of taxes on land and structures permanently attached to land  Personal property taxes includes taxes on all other types of property, both tangible and intangible
  • 19. 1-19 State and Local Taxes  Income taxes  Most state taxable income calculations largely conform to the federal taxable income calculations, with a limited number of modifications  Excise taxes  States typically impose excise taxes on items subject to federal excise tax
  • 20. 1-20 Implicit Taxes  Indirect taxes that result from a tax advantage the government grants to certain transactions.  Defined as the reduced before-tax return that a tax-favored asset produces because of its tax advantaged status.  Difficult to quantify but important to understand in evaluating the relative tax burdens of tax-advantaged investments.
  • 21. 1-21 How to evaluate different tax systems?  Sufficiency: involves assessing the aggregate size of the tax revenues that must be generated and making sure that the tax system provides these revenues.  Equity: how the tax burden should be distributed across taxpayers.  Certainty: means that taxpayers should be able to determine when to pay the tax, where to pay the tax, and how to determine the tax.  Convenience: tax system should be designed to be collected without undue hardship to the taxpayer.  Economy: should minimize the compliance and administration costs associated with the tax system.
  • 22. 1-22 Sufficiency  Types of revenue forecasting:  Static: Forecasting revenue ignores how taxpayers might alter their activities in response to a tax law change and to base projected tax revenues on the existing state of transactions.  Dynamic: Forecasting which tries to predict possible responses by taxpayers to new tax laws.  Income Effect: as tax rates go up, people will work harder to maintain same after-tax income.  Substitution Effect: as tax rates go up, people will substitute non-taxable activities because the marginal value of taxable ones has decreased.
  • 23. 1-23 Equity  In general terms, a tax system is considered fair or equitable if the tax is based on the taxpayer’s ability to pay.  Horizontal Equity: two taxpayers in similar situations pay the same tax.  Vertical Equity: taxpayers with greater ability to pay tax, pay more tax relative to taxpayers with a lesser ability to pay tax.
