The Treatment of Financial Services Under a Broad-Based Consumption Tax
AbstractThis paper examines the appropriate taxation of financial services under a broad-based consumption tax. It is assumed that the underlying objective of the consumption tax is to maintain undistorted prices between current and future consumption (i.e. to impose no distortion on savings decisions) and, in a model with uncertainty, between consumption in different states of the world.
