    Steuervereinfachung wird häufig gefordert. Aus betriebswirtschaftlicher Sicht ist jedoch unklar, welche Entscheidungswirkungen und Verteilungsfolgen Steuer-vereinfachungen tatsächlich haben. Am Beispiel der Betrieblichen Altersvorsorge untersuchen wir experimentell die Wirkungen einer Steuervereinfachung auf die Zahlungsbereitschaft für Steuerberatungsleistungen. Erwerbstätige hatten dabei die Aufgabe, die Vorteilhaftigkeit betrieblicher Altersvorsorgepläne in komplexen und einfachen Steuersystemen zu bestimmen. Wir können zeigen, dass die Steuer-vereinfachung zu einer signifikanten Senkung der Nachfrage nach Steuerberatungs-leistungen führt. Die Steuervereinfachung wirkt allerdings nicht gleichmäßig, sondern selektiv. Von der Steuervereinfachung profitieren im Experiment nahezu ausschließ-lich Personen mit hohem Bildungsstand.
