The curve is used to illustrate Laffer's main premise that the more an activity such as production- is taxed, the less of it is generated A supposed relationship between economic activity and the rate of taxation which suggests that there is an optimum tax rate which maximizes tax revenue It illustrates the concept of taxable income elasticity- i.e., taxable income will change in response to changes in the rate of taxation. Maximising Point The Laffer Curve Region of Increasing Revenue Region of Decling Revenue . The Laffer curve is typically represented as a graph which 0% Tax Rate 100% starts at 0% tax with zero revenue, rises to a maximum rate of revenue at an intermediate rate of taxation, and then falls again to zero revenue at a 100% tax rate.
