The Tax Policy Department deals with the economic aspects of the tax system. This department analyses how tax legislation and amendments affect saving, consumption, investments and labour supply, for example, and how tax revenues change when regulations are amended. Assessments are also made of how tax and social security legislation interact and how they affect the distribution of income. This department is also responsible for preparing the annual tax proposals outlined in the budget.
