The Effects Of State Tax Structure On Business Organizational Form
AbstractThis study examines business organizational form decisions as a source of tax base mobility. We posit that organizational form responses to state tax policy allow for an indirect means of exploring mobility through business tax planning. Using state-level IRS data for the years 1997–2008, we examine the decision to file as a partnership or corporation and how those decisions are affected by a variety of state tax policies. The results suggest that state tax policy, especially corporate and personal income tax rates, affects business entity choice decisions and impacts business planning opportunities within and across states.
