Capital Mobility and Source-Based Taxation of Capital Income in Small Open Economies

George Zodrow ()

International Tax and Public Finance, 2006, vol. 13, issue 2, 269-294

Abstract: This paper examines the taxation of capital income in a small open economy that faces a highly elastic supply of internationally mobile capital and increasing tax competition. The analysis considers a wide variety of additional factors that affect the determination of capital income taxation policy, including the desire to tax economic rents earned by foreign and domestic firms, the desire to take advantage of any treasury transfer effects, the role played by transfer pricing and other financial accounting manipulations by foreign multinationals, the need for a backstop to the personal income tax and various political concerns. The paper evaluates several potential income and consumption-based tax reforms in this context. Copyright Springer Science + Business Media, Inc. 2006
