Abstract
In this study we investigate the impact of the lowering of the payroll taxes in Sweden, in 2007 and 2009. A fixed effect OLS model is used to evaluate the effects. The model estimates the effects of the payroll tax cut in five different regions between 2001 – 2011. The general results from the estimations show that the payroll tax cut did create jobs however the effect was small and the reform was expensive to implement. The results indicates that the cost of each new job was between 470 000 – 1 200 000 SEK. The total amount of new jobs created was estimated to be around 8 000 – 20 000.
