Who is burdened by taxes in Poland?

Jakub Sawulski

No 01/2019, IBS Policy Papers from Instytut Badan Strukturalnych

Abstract: The aim of the study is to find out differences in taxes paid by low earners in comparison to taxes paid by high earners. Our analysis leads to the conclusion that the Polish tax system is regressive: it imposes a greater burden on people with low incomes than on those with high incomes. This is neither in line with the rules of social policy nor with the trends in other countries.
