This article evaluates the discrepancies in the distribution of household income in selected European States. The article focuses on the analysis of Gini coefficient before and after taxation and social transfers in selected European States as well as it analyses the impact of taxation and social transfers on discrepancies in household income in selected States. The results show that with regard to absolute values discrepancies in household income are largely reduced by taxation and social transfers in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Finland, as to relative values: in Belgium, Austria, Finland and Slovenia while they are the least reduced, with regard to both absolute and relative values, in Iceland, Switzerland, Greece and the Netherland.
