Title:On the desirability of taxing charitable contributions PDF Logo
Authors:Blumkin, Tomer
Sadka, Efraim
Issue Date:2007
Series/Report no.:CESifo working paper 1900
Abstract:We develop a model that allows for public goods and status signaling through charitable contributions. This model provides a unified framework in which contributions are driven both by altruism and status signaling. We use this setup to re-examine the conventional practice of rendering a favorable tax treatment to charitable contributions.
