A description of a proposed simulation model for studying certain important aspects of tax policy. An attempt is made to acquaint public finance experts with the potential rewards which new management-science and econometric tools can yield in the analysis of alternative tax proposals. The model described appears not only feasible and relatively inexpensive, but also a systematic and rational approach to a problem area which has been fraught with incertitude and controversy.
