Product Description
Help your students build their comprehension of tax incidence with this engaging and multi-faceted activity!

This activity includes:

1) This "Excise Taxes and Tax Incidence" Activity includes 4 parts. It begins with a graph-based exercise that will ask students to explain how the use of an excise tax changes price level and quantity in a market, as well as the pros and cons of excise taxes and why excise taxes are used in the product market. Next, students will complete a graph-based assessment that requires them to calculate total revenue, tax revenue, net revenue, and the tax incidence in a product market, and then use labeling on the graph to identify areas of tax incidence. Then, students will complete a graph-based assessment in a market with relatively inelastic demand that requires them to calculate total revenue, tax revenue, and the tax incidence in the market, and then shade in areas on the graph to identify areas of tax incidence. Lastly, students will complete a graph-based assessment in a market with relatively elastic demand that requires them to calculate total revenue, tax revenue, and the tax incidence in the market, and then shade in areas on the graph to identify areas of tax incidence.

This activity can be used in many different ways in the classroom. Students can work independently, in pairs, or this activity can be used as a jigsaw in order to facilitate a class-wide discussion about the topics discussed in the activity.
