In this paper, we extend the Bayesian Proxy vector autoregression (VAR) model to incorporate time variation in the parameters. A novel Metropolis-within-Gibbs sampling algorithm is provided to approximate the posterior distributions of the model's parameters. Using the proposed algorithm, we estimate the time-varying effects of taxation shocks in the United States and the United Kingdom and find evidence for a decline in the impact of these shocks on output growth.
