Corporate Tax Incidence and Inefficiency When Corporate and Noncorporate Goods Are Close Substitutes
AbstractAn important deficiency in Harberger's (1962) model of corporate income taxation is its inability to consider both corporate and noncorporate production of the same good. Within-industry substitution has potentially major implications for both the excess burden and incidence of the corporate tax. The authors analyze this within-industry substitution using a model in which each industry/sector contains corporate and noncorporate firms (with identical production functions) that produce goods that are close substitutes. The scope for considerable within-industry substitution of noncorporate for corporate capital leads to a very much larger excess burden than that in the Harberger model.
