This report aims to analyze the effects of changes in tax policies on the income distribution of urban households. It is well known that the redistributive effects of taxes depend upon their size as well as degrees of progressivity.
Income taxes of Korea are very progressive. However, their redistributive effects on income distribution are generally low since their scale is not sufficiently large.
Simulation results tell us that the rise in wage and salary income deduction level results in lowering the revenue share, but raising the exemption rate and progressivity. However, its redistributive effect in not clear. The rise in income deduction level strengthens the progressivity and, as a result, redistributive effect by increasing the exemption rate. To the contrary, it decreases the revenue share and the size of income taxes, and as a result, weakens redistributive effect. (The rest omitted)
