dc.description.abstractThe literature on household behavior contains hardly any empirical research on the withinhouseholddistributional effect of tax-benefit policies. We simulate this effect in the frameworkof a collective model of labor supply when shifting from a joint to an individual taxationsystem in France. We show that the net-of-tax relative earning potential of the wife is asignificant determinant of intrahousehold negotiation but with very low elasticity.Consequently, the labor supply responses to the reform are entirely driven by the traditionalsubstitution and income effects as in a unitary model. For some households only, the reformalters the intrahousehold distribution in a way that tends to change normative conclusions. Asensitivity analysis shows that the collective model would be required if the tax reform wasboth radical and of extended scope.en_US
