【IMI Working Paper No. 1710 [EN]】The Impact of Internet Sales Tax in a Search Model of Money Some Analytical Results

主要内容 CONTENT

【Abstract】

We use a search-theoretic model to study the impact of internet sales taxes, in both lump-sum and proportional fashions. We show that both forms of taxes, especially the lump-sum tax, have real effects on the online market if the terms of trade are negotiable, while a proportional tax distorts the economy further. We then propose a preferential tax policy and show that it together with a lump-sum internet sales tax can recover the first best. We also give some policy suggestions.
