Reader comment on: A 95 Percent Marginal Rate
Submitted by Brock in HK (Hong Kong), Dec 4, 2013 03:53
The best way to avoid this high marginal "tax" rate for low income workers as a result of these benefits and the phaseout is to remove the benefits (and the phaseout) entirely. This would increase the incentive to work (keep nearly 100% of each incremental dollar of income given current marginal tax rates), while simplifying both the tax and benefits systems.
