Tax Burden

Having Trouble fundamentally understanding Tax Burden.

Increase in tax rate, decrease in value of tax burden.

I would think the higher tax rate would be more of a tax burden? Can someone explain how to differentiate?

Is it correct to think tax burden is the percent you are NOT taxed (1-avg tax rate)?

Its simply uour net income / EBIT


tax Burden is equal to (1-Tax rate), so if tax increases the tax burden decreases. and it not net income/EBIT, its net income/EBT.

Think of “tax burden” as the amount of money that you get to keep. So as the tax rate goes up, the amount you get to keep goes down.
