''Optimal capital income taxation in the case of private donations to public goods''
( 2018, Vol. 38 No.2 )
In this study, we investigate optimal nonlinear labor and capital income taxation and subsidies for contribution goods in a dynamic setting. We show that when individuals can contribute to a public good--even if additive and separable preference between consumption and labor supply is assumed and individuals differ only in earning ability--marginal capital income tax rate for low-income earners is not zero, indicating that the Atkinson-Stiglitz theorem does not hold.
