The nine papers in this volume exploit the substantial variation in U.S. tax policy during the last two decades to investigate how taxes affect a range of household behaviour, including labour-force participation, saving behaviour, choice of health insurance plan, choice of child care arrangements, portfolio choice, and tax evasion. They also present analytical results on the effects of different types of tax policy.
