Recent changes in housing policies and their distributional impact across Europe: Research note 10/2016 by Francesco Figari, Katarina Hollan, Manos Matsaganis and Eszter Zolyomi (2016) This research note aims to explore how housing allowances and mortgage interest tax relief have evolved in recent years, against the background of falling disposable incomes and rising housing costs. The analysis focuses on seven EU countries (Greece, Italy, Austria, Hungary, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK), covering a range of housing market developments and housing policy responses. The first part of the research note provides an overview of housing market trends over the period following the financial crisis and examines recent changes in housing policies in the countries concerned. The next part discusses the main features of two specific housing policy instruments, housing allowance and mortgage interest tax relief, also exploring recent changes there and the motives behind these. The last part estimates the distributional impact of housing allowances and mortgage tax relief in 2016 as compared with 2007 using the European tax-benefit model EUROMOD. The research note concludes with a discussion of the results and of the policy implications.
Low incentives to work at the extensive and intensive margin in selected EU countries: Research note 4/2016 by H. Xavier Jara, Katrin Gasior and Mattia Makovec (2016) Tax and benefit systems play an important role in determining work incentives at both, the extensive and the intensive margin of labour supply. The aim of this research note is to provide a comparative analysis of work incentives in selected EU countries. Our analysis makes use of EUROMOD and representative household microdata from nine EU countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Hungary, Austria, Finland and the UK) to provide a description of the distribution of short- and long-term participation tax rates and marginal effective tax rates in 2015, for people currently in work; and to characterise individuals facing low work incentives. Our results highlight the important variation in the distribution of work incentives across our selected countries. Unemployment insurance schemes play a significant role in short-term participation tax rates, although to different extents across countries. Our analysis further highlights differences across countries in terms of the population subgroups with low incentives to work and discusses the relevance of using a relative or an absolute threshold for such definition.
Making work pay - A conceptual paper: Research note 3/2016 by Manos Matsaganis and Francesco Figari (2016) Boosting the incomes of poor families while simultaneously enhancing the incentive to take up a job (if currently out of work), or to work longer hours (if currently employed part-time), is a key policy goal in Europe and beyond. This conceptual paper explains how work incentives may be measured, describes the main features of (and the issues raised by) in-work benefits, and outlines the potential contribution of the European tax-benefit model EUROMOD to further research on work incentives and in-work benefits in EU member states.
