Did tax flattening affect RRSP contributions?

Michael Veall ()

Canadian Journal of Economics, 2001, vol. 34, issue 1, 120-131

Abstract: In 1988 marginal personal income tax rates changed in Canada, for some individuals by reasonably substantial amounts. In this note a large sample of tax-filer data is examined and the conclusion is drawn that, when attention is paid to the possible confounding of marginal tax rate and non-linear income effects, there is no convincing evidence that the tax rate changes affected contributions to Registered Retirement Saving Plans (RRSPs).
