    Therefore, in economics, we distinguish between the impact and incidence of a tax. Thus the buyer will be willing to pay only Rs. The buyer is in a position to restrict demand or increase demand without much difficulty. Incidence of a tax is upon those economic units which finally bear the money burden of it and which are not able to pass on to others. Taxes may be shifted in several directions.

    Tax Shifting 2. Alfred Marshall. If an excise tax a tax on the goods being sold is imposed on producers of the particular good or service, the supply curve shifts to the left because of the increase of marginal cost. This same tax comprises a portion of the price which the garments made from it bear, and it is finally paid, not by the retail clothier, but by his customers. Then the purchase price of the item is reduced by a part of the full amount of that value. It can be difficult to determine the incidence of a tax; indeed, the tax may be partly borne by the taxpayer and partly shifted.

    Therefore, the person who bears the final responsibility of paying for the taxes is called the incidence of tax. The objective of stabilization—implemented through tax policy, government expenditure policy, monetary policyand debt management—is that of maintaining high employment and price stability. It will be seen from this that as a result of the imposition of tax on this commodity and shifting of the supply curve, price rises by the full amount of the tax. Tax shifting can easily take place in the case of taxes on the production and sale of commodities. Edge-worth applied this neo-classical theory of value and price in tax shifting under different demand and supply conditions.

Shifting and incidence of taxation book

The shifting of a tax will involve a change in the price of something from what it otherwise would have been. Thus, a tax levied by a subnational government on the production of a particular good is likely to be borne by suppliers of commodities and productive factors that are immobile.

The purchase price should be reduced sufficiently to cover the tax. The minimum effect of a tax, when it is imposed may be the reduction in disposable income of the taxpayers. Since the taxes and expenditure effects occur simultaneously, they cannot be separated in this case.

It will be seen from Fig. However some economists assumes, that supply curve for the labor is backward-bending. This problem is, therefore, to determine who bears the tax, ultimately. In a market economy the introduction of any tax triggers a whole series of adjustments in consumptionproduction, the supply of productive factors, and the pattern of foreign trade.

This increase in the price of goods will result in two types of dead-weight loss: one attributable to domestic producers being incentivized to produce goods that would be more efficiently produced internationally, and the other attributable to domestic consumers being forced out of the market for goods that they would have bought, had the price not been artificially inflated by the tariff import tax.

One is the incidence due to a change in a particular tax and the second is the incidence due to inflation or deflation.

These are class distinctions concerning the distribution of costs and are not addressed in current tax incidence models. Reshuffling of their family budgets may affect the demand for certain other goods. Private expenditure on the other hand increases due to increased income on the part of the individuals.

The extent of shifting may vary over time, depending on how long it takes to adjust consumption patterns, reallocate land and capital, retrain labour, and so on. It will be seen from the Fig. If consumers drive the same number of miles regardless of gas prices, then a tax on gasoline will be paid for by consumers and not oil companies this is assuming that the price elasticity of supply of oil is high.

All these are the effects of the tax. Thus in this case of perfectly elastic demand, tax burden on the buyers will be nil. In this example, the consumers pay more than the producers, but not all of the tax. Ursula Hicks, on the other hand, talks of formal and effective incidence of a tax.

He may bear the tax himself. This leads to what is referred to as direct tax. The specific tax incidence thus produces two types of incidence. Purposes of taxation During the 19th century the prevalent idea was that taxes should serve mainly to finance the government. Imposition of tax may generate both positive and negative influence on production, growth, saving, consumption, investment etc.

This is possible in the case of durable articles like land, house property, motor car etc. Wine and bottles are jointly demanded.

The objective of stabilization—implemented through tax policy, government expenditure policy, monetary policyand debt management—is that of maintaining high employment and price stability. This is known as back shifting. Here the purchaser calculates the amount of taxes which he would have to pay on the property.

In some cases, he will recover the whole amount of the tax from the domestic consumer. Those users and suppliers who have the most difficulty in adjusting will bear the largest burden.

Incidence of Taxation: Meaning, Impact and Other Details

Hilary Hoynes Incidence UC Davis, Winter 1 / Incidence of Taxation: Meaning, Impact and Other Details. Article Shared by. ADVERTISEMENTS: Meaning of Incidence: The problem of the incidence of a tax is the problem of who pays it. Taxes are not always borne by the people who pay them in the first instance.

It is through this process of shifting that the incidence of a tax comes finally. Shifting finally ends in incidence. When a person on whom tax is levied tries to shift tax on to the other, he may succeed in shifting tax completely, partly, or may not succeed at all.

Shifting of tax can take place in two directions, forward and backward. If tax is shifted, from seller to consumer, it .
