Essay 3: It is often argued that the pre-tax required rate of return on equity in a small and open economy like Sweden is internationally determined. Changes in domestic personal taxes on dividends and capital gains affect the after-tax rate of return of the domestic investors, but have no influence on the cost of capital or on the firms' financial behavior.

Ignoring tax avoidance possibilities, a value-added tax and a cash-flow income tax have identical behavioral and distributional consequences. Yet the available means of tax avoidance under each are very different.

Under a VAT, avoidance occurs through cross-border shopping, whereas under an income tax it occurs through shifting taxable income abroad. These eliminations, which are exogenous to the firm, remove managers’ disincentive to engage in tax avoidance if they consider investor-level taxes.

Using a difference-in-differences model with fixed effects, we find that the average firm affected by an elimination reduces its cash effective tax rate by by: 2. The main purpose is to determine to what extent methods effective in mitigating economic double taxation in a closed economy remain useful in an open economy where the firm's marginal investor is.

When investing in tax avoidance is possible, the official tax rate does not necessarily correspond to what individuals actually pay in taxes.

This affects both redistributive outcomes as well as individual's political attitudes towards taxation. Depending on the avoidance technology different political equilibria emerge.

When the tax avoidance possibilities are limited, the Author: Jesper Roine. Corporate tax avoidance, shareholder dividend tax policy, and manager-shareholder alignment Abstract This study uses a unique international setting to examine managerial incentives to avoid corporate taxes.

We exploit changes in a country’s shareholder dividend tax policy, which are. tax rate imposed on other forms of capital income.

To prevent undue discrimination against corporate investment, most OECD governments therefore alleviate the double taxation of corporate equity income in one way or another, e.g., by granting dividend tax credits or by taxing dividends at a reduced rate at the shareholder Size: KB. Taxation of shareholder income and the cost of capital in an open economy–Theory and applications to the Nordic countries Article (PDF Available).

Not surprisingly, a shareholder income tax with an RRA (and full loss offset) is therefore also neutral in a closed economy, as shown by Sørensen (a). In the closed economy such tax relief at the shareholder level works because it reduces the required pre-tax rate of return on shares.

But in a small open economy with a stock. In many instances, it means a dollar of lost tax revenue through Tax Avoidance or International Tax planning has the same effect as a dollar of lost tax revenue through “Tax Evasion”.

The result is the same from a financial point of view to the tax payer but there is a significant difference between the two methods: Tax Evasion is illegal whereas tax planning or avoidance is legal. Company tax system. Companies are subject to income tax and tax on capital gains in terms of the Income Tax Act and there is no separate law charging corporation tax.

The general rules discussed in Chapters 11 and 12 apply to companies as well as to other persons. Tax avoidance versus tax evasion: on some determinants of the shadow economy.

Neck, Reinhard; Wächter, Jens; Schneider, Friedrich // International Tax & Public Finance;Feb, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p In this paper we investigate how the possibility of (legal) tax avoidance affects the extent of (illegal) tax evasion and hence the shadow economy.

Say that you own Apple Inc. shares that pay $ in dividends a year. You must report the $ on your tax return and, depending on your tax bracket, pay federal and state income tax on it.

Because Apple paid tax on its profits, and then you paid tax on the dividends, it’s called double taxation of : Investopedia Staff. Relevant to our study on the importance of dividend taxation, Sweden has a classical corporate tax system with a double taxation of dividends, with corporate tax and dividend taxation, as many other countries (e.g., Jacob and Jacob ).

This is undertaken with a pooled cross-sectional research design evaluating differences in tax avoidance across firms where there are significant differences in corporate tax Cited by: 3. In this article, we review recent literature (79 articles) on the impact of corporate governance on corporate tax avoidance.

Applying a stakeholder-oriented view, we find that various aspects of corporate governance, such as incentive alignment between management and shareholders, board composition, ownership structure, capital market monitoring, audit, enforcement and Author: Jost Kovermann, Patrick Velte.

We propose that the number of shareholders plays a role in tax avoidance. Given that dividends may serve as compensation between firm insiders and outsiders (Setia-Atmaja, ), the most straightforward argument is certainly that the larger the community of shareholders, the more “hungry mouths to feed,” which raises increased concerns for Author: Jost Kovermann, Martin Wendt.

We examine the impact of managerial ability on the shareholder tax sensitivity of dividends. We find that managerial ability increases the sensitivity of dividends to the dividend tax penalty.

In addition, the positive association between managerial ability and the shareholder tax sensitivity of dividends decreases in institutional by: 4.

Corporate earnings are taxed at the firm level and then again at the shareholder level when they are distributed as a dividend (i.e., double taxation). Therefore, corporate tax avoidance increases after-tax cash flows creating either more private benefits for managers or higher after-tax cash flows to shareholders.

This paper describes the design of the proposed shareholder income tax and shows that it will be neutral with respect to investment and financing decisions and decisions to realize capital gains, provided that full loss offsets are granted.
