    Publication in The Accounting Review

    The research project “Taxation and Corporate Risk-Taking” by Dominika Langenmayr and Rebecca Lester (Stanford University) has been accepted for publication in The Accounting Review (VHB-JourQual: A+). It analytically and empirically shows two main  findings:  First, risk-taking is positively related to the length of tax loss periods because the loss rules shift some risk to the government; and second, the tax rate has a positive effect on risk-taking for  firms that expect to use losses, and a weak negative effect for those that cannot. An earlier version is available here.

They are found to increase tax evasion, but also to significantly lower administrative costs, leading to a net increase in tax revenues.
