Tax/benefit policies: Detailed descriptions and reforms since 2001

The analyses draw on detailed country-specific information about tax and benefit systems from 2001 to 2009.
These also contain illustrations of how net incomes are calculated in each country.
Calculated taxes, benefits and net incomes for a range of earnings levels and family situations are available in the form of so-called “budget constraint” graphs (See Chapter 3 of  Benefits and Wages:   for details)
