Taxing Corporate Income in the 21st Century, Hardback Book

Taxing Corporate Income in the 21st Century Hardback

Edited by James R., Jr. Hines, James Hines, Joel Slemrod


This book was first published in 2007. Most countries levy taxes on corporations, but the impact - and therefore the wisdom - of such taxes is highly controversial among economists.

Does the burden of these taxes fall on wealthy shareowners, or is it passed along to those who work for, or buy the products of, corporations?

Can a country with high corporate taxes remain competitive in the global economy?

This book features research by leading economists and accountants that sheds light on these and related questions, including how taxes affect corporate dividend policy, stock market value, avoidance, and evasion.

The studies promise to inform both future tax policy and regulatory policy, especially in light of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and other actions by the Securities and Exchange Commission that are having profound effects on the market for tax planning and auditing in the wake of the well-publicized accounting scandals in Enron and WorldCom.
