The main conclusion of this analysis is that there is no single best indicator for measuring the greening of the tax system. indd 14 22/08/2012 11:40 Notes: 1+ 1/− − 11 Data availability 11 − 1/− 11 International comparability 11 1 −− 11 Comparability over time 11very good for this criterion; 1 fairly good; − fairly weak; − − very weak. 1 11 −− − − Possible to aggregate 11 − −− 1/− Reflecting tax cuts or exemptions 11 11 1/− − Limited complexity Measuring the greening of the tax system 15 information.

At the outset, this can sound simple – but the different mechanisms that exist to charge consumers can present some difficulties. For example, what if households pay a fixed amount per year in order to receive water from its municipality? Assuming, for example, that the total revenue received reflects the costs of providing the service, would those consumers that used significantly less than the average be deemed as having paid a tax, as the payment they make is not in proportion to the services they received?

Individual tax rates cover only one of many existing taxes, while the aggregated indicator, although comprehensive, is too sensitive to methodological (weighting) choices, which causes a reduction of the value of the aggregation. Moreover, this type of indicator is not capable of reflecting relevant policy options such as exemptions and tax rate differentiation. The implicit tax rate on energy is the most promising indicator, combining high validity with readily available data and easy comparability over time.
