A note on incomplete factor taxation
Roc Armenter ()
Journal of Public Economics, 2008, vol. 92, issue 10-11, 2275-2281
Optimal capital taxes may be positive in the steady state in Ramsey models with an incomplete set of factor taxes. I show this possibility crucially depends on how fiscal policy is constrained at date tÂ =Â 0. If the government is barred from manipulating the value of initial assets, the Chamley-Judd result reappears: the optimal capital tax is always zero in the steady state.
