Resumo Português:Brazil is marked by high income inequality ratings and high poverty ratings, this awaken us the questioning if the indirect taxes produce effect on the lower social strata. Up against that, this research is centered on check the effects of the ICMS taxation on the poor people of the country, since this is an indirect, regressive and arbitrary tax, whose burden is borne disproportionately by those who are in the low income group. So, the identification of the greatness of ICMS on the poor people becomes important as through its analysis we can identify which path to follow to provide the most accurate answers to the improvement of the existing Public Policies and those which should be deployed. Data from this study were drawn from PNAD from 1996 to 2006, except the year 2000, census year, comprising a period of 10 years, while the information about the ICMS were makes available by IPEADATA. The estimated model can be considered as an extension of the specification proposed by Ravallion e Chen (1997). The results show that the effect of ICMS is positive, although in small greatness, and this tends to confirm the regressive nature of this tax.
