Abstract

This article presents a simulation of the impact of the carbon tax reform on the Estonian economy using a computable general equilibrium model. Nine different scenarios have been considered. The long-term results of the proposed tax reform should not hamper the country's economic development, provided that the appropriate tax option is used. The reform has to be implemented as a package of changes in the entire tax system.
