- The incidence of a tax is independent of who actually pays the tax.
- The actual split between demanders and suppliers depends on the slope of the supply and demand curves, not the legalities.

- The City of Kent is planning a tax on automobile sales.
- One plan would levy the tax on dealers, the other on customers.
- Which will have the greater effect on sales?
