German term or phrase: Einganssteuersatz
I am looking for the translation for the term "Eingangssteuersatz". Could this be income tax? The context refers to the situation in Britain:
"sinkende Steuern haben einen positiven Effekt auf den realen Lohn. Der EINGANSSTEUERSATZ wurde nach und nach auf derzeit 23 Prozent reduziert. die Regierung palnt weitere Steuererleichterung"

I am also not sure about the right expression for "persoenlich verfuegbares reales Einkommen".

"Personal real income" seems a bit flat, but then I am no economics buff. I am grateful for any help.

English translation:1.initial or lowest tax rate; 2. personal disposable income
Explanation:
1. Income tax is Einkommensteuer. A SATZ is a rate. To calculate taxes, you first come up with a taxable income, then apply to the first X dollars the LOWEST tax rate, then to the next Y dollars the rate for the next bracket up, etc., in progressive tax systems. The EingangssteuerSATZ is that lowest rate. As Mickey said, that is the rate paid on the TAXABLE income for people with enough income to have some of it be taxable, but not so much that they go into the next rates on their last dollars. Namely, their taxable income is less than X.
So your answer is NOT income tax or marginal tax rate, which is the rate you pay on your most heavily taxed, last dollar earned. It is the initial rate applied to your first taxable dollars. (If you have marks or pesos, ditto.)
2.Disposable income = verfugbares Einkommen is the money where you have some real say in what you do with it month after month. After you've paid rent or mortgage or whatever and all you need to scrape by. It's what you use to finance what you want but don't necessarily need. Best Wishes. Nancy

Explanation:
You're right "Eingangsteuersatz" has to do with income tax.

Eichborn shows: "marginal tax rate" and "standard rate of income tax"

Hamblock/Wessels shows: "marginal tax rate" and "threshold tariff"

You could also use: "progression minimum tax level" or "minimum income tax bracket rate" or "minimum personal income tax rate"

"persönlich verfügbares reales Einkommen" = "personal disposable real income" or "real personal disposable income"

Explanation:
Der Eingangssteuersatz gibt den Steuersatz an, mit dem die erste Mark oberhalb des Grundfreibetrags besteuert wird.

That means that it is the tax rate that applies to those who are beginning to pay taxes at all. It rises then with the income.
