    Der folgende Bericht beschreibt die bisherigen Ergebnisse der Forschungsarbeiten zum Projekt "Steuererhebungskosten". Ziel des empirisch orientierten Projektes ist es, mit wissenschaftlichen Methoden die Kosten der Erhebung von Ertragssteuer bei Unternehmen (Einkommensteuer von Einzelunternehmen, Einkommensteuer auf Gewinne von Personengesellschaften, Lohnsteuerabzugsverfahren, Körperschaftsteuer, Gewerbesteuer u. ä.) zu untersuchen sowie Steuerreformvorschläge darauf hin zu prüfen, ob und inwieweit sich hiermit auch eine Senkung der Steuererhebungskosten erreichen lässt. Im Teil I des Berichts wird zunächst die Steuervereinfachung als Kriterium einer optimalen Ertragsbesteuerung gewürdigt. Teil II bietet den Problemeinstieg durch eine Würdigung der Steuererhebungskosten als quantitativen Ausdruck von Steuerkomplexität. Die empirischen Untersuchungen erstreckten sich im Rahmen des Projekts zunächst auf die Ermittlung des Status Quo der Steuerbefolgungskosten im Bereich der gegenwärtigen Ertragssteuern bei jenen Unternehmen, die die Erfüllung ihrer wesentlichen Pflichten aus den Ertragssteuern an Steuerberater delegieren. Im Teil III des Berichts wird über den Ansatz und die Ergebnisse dieses Projekts berichtet.
