Theoretical framework on the assessment of the tax burden on capital investment


  • N. Nazukova


The article dwells upon one of the prevailing methods of determining the tax burden on fixed asset investments - the effective tax rates. Despite the relevance of studying the impact of taxation on investment, only some empirical research has been accumulated currently, due to the complexities of measuring the effective tax rates. Therefore, this article is dedicated to the algorithm for calculating effective marginal tax rates based on the existing methodologies. The author's calculations are based on the specified methodology, which allows estimating the actual tax burden on business investment. The calculation has important practical significance as it allows determining the profitability of investments financed by different sources.
