In this paper, using a general equilibrium model, I estimate the maximum revenue that Mexico and the United States can achieve by varying the taxes on labor and capital. My results indicate that both countries could raise more revenue in the long run by reducing the tax on capital and increasing the tax on labor than by raising both.
