How Do Taxes Affect Investors' Stock Market Realizations? Evidence from Tax-Return Panel Data
AbstractThis article provides direct evidence on the empirical importance of tax-reduction strategies. The authors' results indicate that relatively few investors trade securities to reduce their taxes and that tax-induced trading has little effect on stock prices. Their findings suggest that, holding all else constant, stock prices are likely to be insensitive to the difference between short- and long-term capital gains tax rates.
