Charitable bequests and taxes on inheritances and estates : aggregate evidence from across states and time by Jon M Bakija( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One recurring issue in the debate over the estate tax is its impact on the non-profit sector. With the top marginal rate of federal estate tax currently at 49 percent, abolishing the tax would approximately double the price of a charitable bequest relative to an ordinary bequest for the wealthiest estates. It would also, however, raise the after-tax wealth of decedents, so the ultimate impact of any particular policy change depends in part on the relative sizes of the price and wealth elasticities. This paper estimates the impact of taxes on charitable bequests using an econometric framework that exploits the fact that federal and state tax rates on estates and inheritances have changed over time in different ways across states and real wealth levels. The effect of federal and state inheritance and estate taxes on charitable bequests is estimated using pooled cross-sectional data spanning several decades information from federal estate tax returns. Under several different specifications, we find evidence that the incentives for charitable giving present in state and federal estate and inheritance taxes have a strong positive effect on charitable bequests. Our estimates that rely on differences in the time path of state and federal tax rates across groups provide a more credible source of identification than the previous literature of a large and significant price elasticity of charitable bequests

How the Growing Gap in Life Expectancy May Affect Retirement Benefits and Reforms by Alan J Auerbach( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Older Americans have experienced dramatic gains in life expectancy in recent decades, but an emerging literature reveals that these gains are accumulating mostly to those at the top of the income distribution. We explore how growing inequality in life expectancy affects lifetime benefits from Social Security, Medicare, and other programs and how this phenomenon interacts with possible program reforms. We first project that life expectancy at age 50 for males in the two highest income quintiles will rise by 7 to 8 years between the 1930 and 1960 birth cohorts, but that the two lowest income quintiles will experience little to no increase over that time period. This divergence in life expectancy will cause the gap between average lifetime program benefits received by men in the highest and lowest quintiles to widen by $130,000 (in $2009) over this period. Finally we simulate the effect of Social Security reforms such as raising the normal retirement age and changing the benefit formula to see whether they mitigate or enhance the reduced progressivity resulting from the widening gap in life expectancy
Six Tax Laws Later: How Individuals' Marginal Federal Income Tax Rates Changed between 1980 and 1995 by Leonard Burman( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors examine the evolution of marginal federal income tax rates from 1980 to 1995 using panel and cross-section data. Results show that marginal rates fell dramatically for most taxpayers between 1980 and 1995. Whereas more than three-quarters of taxpayers faced statutory tax rates above 15 percent in 1980, less than one-quarter of taxpayers were in that situation in 1995. Individuals' tax rates also rose and fell due to life-cycle changes in income. Young people (ages 30-44) were twice as likely to experience tax rate increases as older taxpayers. Nonetheless, the majority of taxpayers in every age group experienced rate reductions. The large tax rate cuts in 1981 and 1986 clearly dominate life-cycle effects
