Optimum Taxation of Each Year's Income
In this paper, a two-type, two-period model of optimum income taxation is investigated. I assume full commitment and that current income determines the agents' tax burden in each period. It is shown that such a tax system does not allow one to implement the optimal long-term tax contract and that it implies positive marginal tax rates at the upper end of the income distribution.
