|Title:||Tax reforms in Singapore||Authors:||Leung, H.M.
|Issue Date:||1999||Citation:||Leung, H.M.,Low, L.,Toh, M.H. (1999). Tax reforms in Singapore. Journal of Policy Modeling 21 (5) : 607-617. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||This paper takes the view that tax reforms in the form of a reshuffling of marginal tax rates are more appropriate policy recommendations than a whole-sale restructuring of a country's tax system. We adopted a simple model that yields simple and intuitive recommendations on the directions of such tax reforms. This model is estimated using the 1987/88 Singapore Household Expenditure Survey. The result also suggests that the recently introduced Goods and Services Tax may be an efficient reform, especially if the government puts limited value on inequality. © 1999 Society for Policy Modeling.
