2 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | C: Impôts et péréquations financières  Qui décide, qui encaisse quelle sorte d’impôts?  Système de péréquation?

3 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | Competition  Many economist argue that a federation should minimize the extent to which constituent units use tax competition to influence companies and individuals to locate in a particular area (limited control over mobile taxpayers). Danger: downward spiral of tax rates, loss of revenues, focus on other taxes.  Some economist favour fairly extensive tax competition because they believe it can promote better services (Anderson 2008: 31).

4 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | Other considerations  Accountability: Governments are more accountable to their electors when they have to raise most of their revenues.  Equity considerations: Should poorer constituent units have greater tax efforts, lower services or transfer to assist them?  Administrative: Central revenue collection is more advantageous.

11 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | The SNA describes three categories of taxes. Here are the two most important ones:  The first category, taxes on production and imports, historically referred to as indirect taxes, is broken down into two components in the SNA: taxes on products, such as VAT, and other taxes on production such as taxes on the ownership or use of land, buildings or other assets used in production or on labour employed (payroll tax).  The second category, current taxes on income, wealth, etc., consists mainly of taxes levied on the incomes of households and corporations. The category is not described simply as “current taxes on income and wealth” because it includes periodic taxes on households that are assessed neither on the income nor the wealth of the household or its members, for example, poll taxes.

14 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | Social contributions Social contributions are actual or imputed payments to social insurance schemes to make provision for social insurance benefits. They may be made by employers on behalf of their employees or by employees, self- employed or non-employed persons on their own behalf. The contributions may be compulsory or voluntary and the schemes may be funded or unfunded. Compulsory social security contributions paid to general government or to social security funds under the effective control of government form an important part of government revenue and, although they are not treated so in the SNA, many analysts (including the OECD’s Tax Directorate) consider the payments as being analogous to a tax on income and so part of a country’s overall tax burden.

16 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | Federalist and unitary countries compared

17 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | What about equalization?

18 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | Disparities between constituent units  The wealth of constituent units within federation differs greatly, affecting their ability to raise own-source revenue.  Most federations have provisions for dealing with these differences through transfers.  There is a great variety in the design and the underlying principles for these transfers.

19 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | Transfers to constituent units  In all countries central government raises more revenue than it spends for its own needs.  Some transfers are unconditional, others are conditional (and for example promote the achievement of national purposes or standards).

20 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | Central transfer relative to constituent-unit spending

21 | ©IDHEAP - | | 26/04/2015 | Different redistribution systems  Usually there are transfers from central government to the constituent units. In Switzerland and Germany there also transfers from richer to poorer constituent units.  What is the aim of the equalization: minimal standards, same level, within a range, super-equalization?  The importance of unconditional transfers in equalization programs varies.  Conditional transfers can also include equalization considerations.  Central government spending (investments) in specific areas can also have a equalizing effect.
