The effects of permanent income tax cuts on emigration from Israel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we estimate the effect on emigration of the permanent income tax reductions implemented in Israel during the period 2004-2010. We find that emigration flows from Israel declined, especially for brackets that benefited from a larger tax reduction. We also find that the effect is stronger for younger workers than for older ones, a result consistent with the former group deriving expected tax benefits over a longer duration of time.
