Relying on MAMS, a World Bank study of Chilean fiscal reforms analyzes the consequences of tax reforms and investments in education, focusing on macroeconomic and distributive aspects. The reforms chosen for analysis include i) changes in the income tax structure: increased taxation of capital incomes and elimination of incentives to defer tax payments; and ii) indirect tax measures comprising introduction of green taxes, and increased excise tax rates on tobacco, and sweetened and alcoholic beverages. The team task leader is Rong Qian of the World Bank’s Macro and Fiscal Management Global Practice (MFM GP). The MAMS analysis is carried out by Calvin Djiofack (MFM GP) and Carmen Estrades (Consultant) in collaboration with Hans Lofgren of DECPG. The study will be completed during FY2015.
