The impact on farms caused by changing the tax rate structure from progressive to flat are conceptualized in a general sense. Results from a Monte Carlo simulation model indicate that quite significant effects on farms could occur due to rate structure changes. Larger farms would be favored relative to small farms in terms of wealth. However, the variation in after-tax incomes would increase relatively more for the larger farms.
