This presentation examines Australia’s Mature Age Worker Tax offset (MAWTO), a targeted earned income tax credit of up to $500 to incentivise participation of older workers that existed from 2004-05 to 2014-15. Using a difference-in-differences approach, the authors find that MAWTO increased labor market participation by around 0.5 percentage points. For women only, it had a small impact on earnings of about 1.5 per cent.
