|Description:||2014 Trans-Atlantic Public Economics Seminar "Personal Income Taxation and Household Behavior" TAPES 2014 - National Bureau of Economic Research|
|Location:||Vienna, Institute for Advanced Studies IHS, Austria|
|Subject:||We welcome submissions on any topic, empirical or theoretical, dealing with the effects of the personal income tax on household and firm behavior. New research on traditional topics, such as tax effects on labor supply, household savings, and portfolio choice, is welcome. However, more recent evidence suggests that taxable income is much more responsive than either labor supply or savings. What else is responding to taxes? Possibilities include forms of compensation, rates of self-employment, dividend payout rates, where and when income is reported, firms' choice of organizational form, rates of tax evasion, the size of the informal economy, and cross-border migration of people or economic activity. There are also a variety of other elements in the personal income tax base, e.g. itemized deductions, that can respond to taxes. Papers examining how taxes affect these other aspects of behavior are particularly welcome. [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
