Long-run inheritance tax and capital income tax with rational altruism

Pascal Belan () and Erwan Moussault ()

No 2020-02, THEMA Working Papers from THEMA (THéorie Economique, Modélisation et Applications), Université de Cergy-Pontoise

Abstract: We consider a two-period overlapping generation model with rational altruism à la Barro. The government finances public spending with taxes on labor income, capital income and inheritance. We show that, in the long-run, inheritance tax and capital income tax are generally different from zero, even if the optimal tax policy leads to the modified Golden-rule.
