We investigate whether the optimal income tax model of Mirrlees (1971) can reproduce the empirically observed increasing average tax rates. We give a necessary condition and exhibit two examples where the optimal average tax rates are increasing. We wish to thank Mathias Hungerbühler and Laurence Jacquet for stimulating discussions.
