Abstract: This paper evaluates the quantitative macroeconomic effects of the persistent decline of income and corporate tax rates in Israel during the 2000s. The analysis is based on the simulation of a calibrated model, given a parameterized version of the tax rates process in this period. The results indicate an important contribution of the tax process to the expansion of GDP during the 2000s.
