The Norwegian Shareholder Tax Reconsidered

Abstract [en]

In an article in International Tax and Public Finance, Peter Birch Sørensen (2005) gives anin-depth account of the new Norwegian Shareholder Tax, which allows the shareholders adeduction for an imputed risk-free rate of return. Sørensen’s positive evaluation appears asreasonable for a closed economy where the deduction for the imputed return is capitalizedinto the market prices of corporate shares. We show that in a small open economy where nocapitalization occurs, the Norwegian shareholder tax is likely to leave the distortions causedby the corporate income tax unaffected, and to add new distortions to shareholders’ portfoliodecisions.
