Income Versus Consumption Tax Baselines For Tax Expenditures
This paper explores the implications of evaluating income tax preferences, or tax expenditures, under a consumption tax baseline. More specifically, it examines the conceptual differences between income and consumption tax baselines, and employs an X-tax prototype of a consumption tax to gauge the sensitivity of estimates to the two baselines. The tax expenditure estimates for capital income preferences are vastly different under the two regimes.
