Abstract

Almost all tax reforms in Israel since 1996 were ‘gradual’, ‘fine-tuning-style', and eventually had zero impact on the economic growth rate. The only exemption – corporate tax rate lowering was caused by the pressure of international competition. Some data and references are provided to the reader to illustrate this bleak and unimpressive picture.

Keywords: gradual reforms, tax cuts, tax revenues
