Tax Reform and Adjustment Costs: The Impact on Investment and Market Value
AbstractThis paper provides an effective tax rate measure that is valid in the presence of adjustment costs and anticipated tax changes and a measure of the impact of tax changes on market value that may be decomposed into the effects on discounted pure profits and normal returns to capital. Changes in the value of capital may, in turn, be decomposed further into changes in the marginal value of new capital and changes in the relative value of new and existing capital. These new measures are used to evaluate tax changes similar to those introduced by the recent U.S. tax reform.
