Abstract: What can changes in tax structure accomplish? The Swedish tax reform of 1991 is the most far-reaching reform in any industrialized country in the post-war period. It represents a thorough application of a strategy of rate cuts cum base broadening, and it has affected a myriad of economic incentives in a more or less substantial way. This article reviews the lessons form a major evaluation effort, sponsored by the Swedish government, and involving a large number of researchers.
