Title:(Why) do we need corporate taxation? PDF Logo
Authors:Weichenrieder, Alfons J.
Issue Date:2005
Series/Report no.:CESifo working papers 1495
Abstract:Tax rates on corporate income have considerably come down in the process of tax competition and further pressures are evident. Against this background, the paper discusses possible benefits of corporate income taxation that may be at risk. In particular, the paper surveys the empirical evidence for a backstop function of the corporate income tax that allows preserving individual taxes.
