Disclaimers for Tax-Benefit, Pension and Family Support Calculators

 

Tax-Benefit calculator disclaimer:

The OECD tax-benefit web calculator is based on careful modelling of policy rules in each country. While the OECD has carefully validated these rules jointly with national experts and every care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the calculations, it is still possible that errors did occur. Users are therefore advised to verify results against national sources and  contact the OECD in case  of further questions.

 Tax liabilities and benefit entitlements in most countries depend on many other factors beyond those covered by the web calculator, e.g. tax-deductible expenditures, participation in employment activation programmes, unearned income and assets. Considering all these elements would reduce the scope for cross-country comparisons and add to the computational burden. The calculator makes therefore a number of methodological assumptions designed to ease calculations while capturing the most important characteristics of tax-benefit systems across countries. Please visit the project webpage for a detailed description of the these methodological assumptions and other useful resources regarding the OECD tax-benefit model.
