An efficient monetary and tax system plays an important role in the proper performance of the economic system, and can effect on motivation of labor, consumer, savings and investment behavior. A theory of monetary and tax reform is movement of the income tax system and inflation tax to the system of consumption tax, that can increase the tendency to savings, investment and capital accumulation. In this study, with public finance approach and using dynamic general equilibrium model with cash in advance restriction on consumption and investment, analysis the effects of reform inflation tax and consumption tax rates during the equilibrium growth path. Then, with put the amount of parameters in the steady state, sensitivity analysis of the variables to the reform of inflation tax and consumption tax rates will be discussed in the various reform program. The results of calibration and sensitivity analysis in various scenarios indicates that the reduce of inflation tax and increase the consumption tax rate, along with reducing the size of government and reduce liquidity constraints on investment, has increased capital accumulation, production, consumption, real money balances per capita and the welfare in the steady state.
