Abstract:     
This paper provides evidence showing that the insensitivity of marginal commodity tax reforms to demand specification, observed in recent studies, does not extend to the non-marginal case. The size of the tax change has a sharp impact on commodity tax reforms. In contrast to price effects, neither household composition nor quadratic Engel curves alters significantly the direction of tax change.
