AbstractThe remarkable similarities of the effects of discretionary tax changes between the US and the UK, shown in (Cloyne, J. 2013. “Discretionary Tax Changes and the Macroeconomy: New Narrative Evidence from the United Kingdom. American Economic Review 103: 1507–1528.), raise the obvious concern whether the effects of tax changes at disaggregated levels in the UK still resemble those in the US. This paper investigates the issue along three dimensions – corporate and personal income tax changes, anticipated and unanticipated tax changes, and positive and negative tax changes. An important contribution of this paper is to construct a data set on exogenous changes of corporate and personal income taxes in the UK, identified from narrative sources along the lines of Cloyne (2013).
