Interactions between wages and the tax transfer system

1 Nov 2006
Description

To what extent are wage increases retained by wage earners, rather than being 'clawed back' by government through increases in income tax or reductions in welfare payments? This report commissioned by the Australian Fair Pay Commission looks at the distribution of 'effective tax rates' for all employees in Australia; assesses the rates faced by a set of hypothetical families as one parent or a sole parent increases their working hours from zero to full time; and examines the impact of a range of hypothetical wage increases on the income of low wage workers.
