How taxes work in the economy

Some people may be confused on how taxes work when it comes to the economy, so, here's some information that can help.


How does tax increase affect the economy?

Primarily through their impact on demand. Tax cuts boost demand by increasing disposable income and by encouraging businesses to hire and invest more. Tax increases do the reverse.

High marginal tax rates can discourage work, savings, investment, and innovation, while specific tax preferences can affect the allocation of economic resources.

Tax cuts boost the economy by putting more money into circulation. They also increase the deficit if they aren't offset by spending cuts. As a result, tax cuts improve the economy in the long term if they lead to an increase in federal debt.
