Key Points (© RFF) :

  • Carbon taxes are likely not as regressive as they are often thought to be.
  • Poor households can be compensated for increased prices through effective use of tax revenue.
  • Incidence measures based on annual income or only use side effects may overstate tax regressivity.
  • Government programs that index to inflation may contribute to a more progressive tax.
  • Tax effects in different parts of the country will be muted.
  • Recycling revenue to consumers through direct rebates will be progressive and reach more households, though targeted tax swaps could have similar effects.
