United States tax reform in the 21st century( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Tax reform debates in the United States have focused on the question of whether the existing corporate and individual income tax system should be replaced with some form of a national consumption tax. This book contains essays written by internationally recognized tax experts who describe the current state in economic thinking on the issue of whether fundamental tax reform is preferable to continued incremental reform of the existing income tax. The papers were originally commissioned by the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University, Houston. The collection covers a range of tax policy issues related to consumption tax reforms, including their economic effects, distributional consequences, effects on administrative and compliance costs, transitional issues and the political aspects of fundamental tax reform, and international comparisons. The book will serve as a comprehensive guide to the ongoing tax reform debate to tax policy makers and the general electorate.

The incidence of the local property tax : a re-evaluation by Peter M Mieszkowski( )

6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The article identifies the key assumptions that underlie competing theories of the incidence of the local property tax. We conclude that the"benefit view" which maintains that the property tax system is equivalent to a set of non-distortionary user changes is correct only under very restrictive assumptions. Only when communities adopt a set of exact, binding zoning requirements will a distortionary tax be transformed into a lump-sum tax. We argue that within jurisdiction heterogeneity of house and firm typeis very unlikely and that the burden of a property tax that is distortionary at the margin falls on the owners of capital
The new view of the property tax : a reformulation by Peter M Mieszkowski( )

6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The"new view" of the property tax is reformulated within the context of a model with interjurisdictional competition, endogenous local public services, individuals who are segregated into homogeneous communities according to tastes for local public services, a simple form of land use zoning, and a political or constitutional constraint on the use of head taxes by local governments. Expressions for the "profits tax" and"excise tax" effects of the property tax are derived. The effects of a "consumption distortion" away from government services due to local reluctance to tax mobile capital are also examined

Canadian Import demand for fuels : a study of aggregation bias in econometric research by Peter M Mieszkowski( )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Earlier econometric studies of import demand functions have been subject to two serious limitations. In the first place, they have been based on highly unreliable price series, that is, price series which have been subject to serious errors of sampling or measurement and, in any case, were ill-suited to the purpose at hand. In the second place, the estimates of import demand parameters have been derived from highly aggregative price and value series and have, therefore, been biased towards zero."--
