Income Tax Incidence with Positive Population Growth
University at Albany, SUNY - Department of Economics
April 15, 2010
This paper derives the incidence of linear taxes on capital and labor in a competitive equilibrium in balanced growth. The paper further considers a tax on consumption and a tax credit. Tax incidence is determined using an analytic expression for the saving rate out of income net of all taxes and credits. Results for zero population growth do not extend to positive population growth, where the incidence of a tax on interest income is positive and a tax on consumption reduces the interest rate.
