Q. Explain the effects of taxation on the equilibrium of a firm?

Suppose a tax is imposed on the producers of a commodity, the tax is on each unit for they produce. Naturally, the producers wish they could pass the tax on to the consumers. The more elastic the demand, the less willing are the buyers to pay higher prices for smaller quantities. The more inelastic the supply, the greater is decline in marginal cost as output is cut back by the tax which is then added to a lower level of cost.
