The paper summarizes recent empirical studies on indirect tax incidence and assesses whether the robust explanations from theory and earlier empirical results are confirmed. Although there are a number of influence factors of tax incidence in real markets which have to be analysed on a case-by-case basis, some cautious rules-of-thumb can be deducted which might bring tax policy more in line with both traditional and more recent conclusions.
