A Note On The Impact Of Progressive Dividend Taxation On Investment Decisions
This paper studies the distortionary impact of progressive dividend taxation on investment decisions under the premises of the “new” view. According to the new view, proportional dividend taxation does not distort firms' investment decisions. We find that progressive dividend taxation distorts investment decisions due to endogenous variations in the marginal tax rate caused by stochastic taxable income over the business cycle. The magnitude of this distortion critically depends upon the marginal tax rate and the progressivity of the tax system.
