报告摘要:We study the impacts of local corporate taxes on the geography of foreign multinationals and quantify the welfare implications of corporate taxes across regions within the host country. We build a quantifiable spatial model with multinational production (MP) and corporate taxes. We estimate the key parameter of our model, the elasticity of MP with respect to local corporate tax rates, exploiting the interaction of two reforms in China. Our estimate suggests that the spatial allocation of foreign MP is highly responsive to changes in local corporate taxes. Our counterfactual analysis shows that (i) China's corporate tax reform in 2008 has shifted foreign MP towards central and western provinces in China and increased the Chinese welfare by 0:3%; (ii) regional corporate tax competition in China would substantially reduce the corporate tax revenue in China and lower the Chinese welfare by 0:5%; and (iii) the optimal corporate taxes in China would increase the Chinese welfare by 3%.
