Abstract

Zusammenfassung Die Corona-Krise hat die Debatte über eine steuerliche Entlastung von Unternehmen neu belebt. Tatsächlich haben Reformen in Deutschland bereits seit 20 Jahren die Unternehmensbesteuerung deutlich gesenkt. Ziel ist es, im internationalen Steuerwettbewerb zu bestehen. Allerdings geht die neue ökonomische Geografie davon aus, dass es sich Volkswirtschaften mit hoher Standortattraktivität leisten können, hohe Steuern zu erheben. Für die Standortwahl der Unternehmen sind stabile wirtschaftliche Rahmenbedingungen, eine ausgebaute Infrastruktur und gut ausgebildete Arbeitskräfte wesentlich wichtiger. Die Steuerpolitik in der COVID-19-Pandemie sollte sich dementsprechend darauf konzentrieren, diese Standortfaktoren zu verbessern.
