Abstract

Die derzeitige Besteuerung von Renten und Pensionen in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland ist inkonsequent und in sich widersprüchlich. Dies wurde mehrfach vom Bundesverfassungsgericht angemahnt. Aufgabe dieses Beitrags ist es, die Prinzipien einer rationalen Renten- und Pensionsbesteuerung komprimiert darzustellen und sie mit der gängigen Praxis im In- und Ausland zu vergleichen. Der Beitrag präzisiert in seinem theoretischen Teil, wie das "Neutralitätspostulat" zu verstehen ist, und analysiert in seinem praktischen Teil, wie praktikabel verschiedene Besteuerungsvarianten sind. Aus diesen Untersuchungen folgt ein Plädoyer für eine transparente nachgelagerte Besteuerung aller Alterseinkünfte. Das Papier schließt daher mit kurzgefaßten Empfehlungen für eine Reform der deutschen Renten- und Pensionsbesteuerung.
