A Note on the Taxation of International Capital Income Flows

Contents:

Author Info

  • Bruce, N.

Abstract

Seemingly persuasive arguments can be made to suggest that income from foreign-owned capital should be taxed by a small open economy and that it should not be taxed. The author shows that the case for taxing foreign capital income as part of an "optimal" tax scheme rests on the assumption that tax rates on other forms of income are not set optimally. In particular, if economic profit is not fully taxed, a tax on foreign capital income should not be taxed by the capital-importing country. Copyright 1992 by The Economic Society of Australia.
