According to taxation theory, a government should tax goods and services which have a more elastic supply less. As women’s labour supply is more elastic than men’s, tax rates on labour income should be lower for women than for men. The authors of CEPR DP6591 analyse the effects of gender based taxation and find that it provides substantial welfare and GDP gains because it minimizes the overall social loss from labour market distortions.
