The incidence of company tax in Australia
This paper uses a computable general equilibrium framework to provide estimates of where the costs of company tax are borne and to test the importance of certain assumptions. The welfare benefits of a small fall in the company tax rate are shared between company owners and workers. The paper finds that in the long-run around one-third of the benefit accrues to the owners of capital in the main scenario, with the remaining two-thirds flowing to households, primarily through rises in real wages. Results with alternative assumptions are also presented.
