progressiv skat
Definition:
progressiv skat, skat, som indebærer, at skattebetalingen vokser mere end proportionalt med skatteyderens indkomst. Formålet med en progression i skattesystemet er at føre fordelingspolitik. Progressionen skal sikre, at de højeste indkomster bærer ikke bare en absolut, men også en forholdsmæssigt stor andel af skattebetalingen.
