Author: Ravi Kanbur, Michael Keen and Matti Toumala. Tax systems raise large amounts of revenue for funding public sector's activities, and tax/transfer policy, together with public provision of education, health care, and social services, play a crucial role in treating the symptoms and the causes of poverty.

Seade () derives optimal tax rules under a general non-welfarist objective function for the adverse selection case. Kanbur et al () and Pirttilä and Tuomala () consider the implications of poverty alleviation as a policy objective on optimal income taxation and the combination of income commodity taxation rules, respectively.

the typical non-welfarist goal of poverty alleviation in a welfarist analyti-cal setting. Such a framework enables us to directly compare the optimal linear income tax structures resulting under the welfarist and non-welfarist perspectives5.

In order to accommodate the poverty reduction criterion in a welfarist framework, it has to be. Optimal linear income tax structures derived assuming different social objective functions are then explicitly compared. Under quite general conditions, we show that the poverty-minimising income taxation is more redistributive than the standard welfare-maximising one.

In this paper we analyse optimal non-linear income taxation, linear commodity taxation and public good provision when the government objective is to minimise poverty.

This mixed taxation framework has the attractive feature that it corresponds to the type of tax systems actually by: Optimal taxation and public provision for poverty reduction 67 Keen () do consider linear income taxation together with poverty minimization, but they do not produce optimal tax rules but focus on a tax reform perspective, and provide tax rate simulations.
