Auerbach: Reforming Capital Gains Taxation
Auerbach argues that by shifting the capital gains tax from new investment to existing assets and by modifying the method of realization-based taxation, it’s possible to construct a progressive tax reform that reduces the lock-in effect, the limits on capital losses that discourage risk-taking, the incentives for recharacterizing other income as capital gains, and the incentives for corporate borrowing.
