Abstract

Zussamenfassung Im Jahr 2020 werden viele Unternehmen durch die Corona-Pandemie Verluste erleiden. Das deutsche Steuersystem behandelt Gewinne und Verluste asymmetrisch: Während Gewinne sofort versteuert werden müssen, führen Verluste oft nicht zu direkten Steuererstattungen. Dieser Beitrag diskutiert verschiedene Möglichkeiten, wie die steuerliche Behandlung von Unternehmen in Verlustsituationen verbessert werden kann. Eine Mikrosimulation der Reformoptionen zeigt, dass eine betragsmäßige Ausweitung der Verlustrücktragsmöglichkeiten eine deutlich größere Wirkung entfaltet als ein längerer Rücktragszeitraum. Bessere Verlustrücktragsmöglichkeiten setzen zudem starke Investitionsanreize.
