The paper provides a comprehensive assessment of the growth and welfare effects of the 2008 German corporate tax reform, which entails a shift of the capital tax burden from the firm to the household level. Using a dynamic two-country computable generalequilibrium model with integrated capital markets, the results indicate a faint growth stimulus of the reform and a negative effect on domestic welfare. In fact, the reform increased the double taxation of equity-financed corporate investment, thereby impeding firms’ investment. Further, the reform-induced tax incentives for foreigners to invest in German equity undermines the financing of the reform.
