In order to predict the economic, fiscal and socio-political consequences of reform proposals concerning taxes, contributions, and benefits, the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) has signed a research framework agreement on a series of short studies that analyze possible revenue and distribution effects of changes in the German tax and transfer system. The studies use microsimulation models, which are based on representative household data and show reform-induced behavioral changes in labor supply.
