Marginal tax rate

The marginal tax rate is the tax rate with which the last unit of the tax base is charged. With a progressive tariff (progression) the marginal tax rate is always higher than the average tax rate. A typical example of a progressive course is the Income tax rate. With a proportional tax rate, the average and marginal tax rates are identical.
