Buy Article:


The economic literature on forest taxation concludes that the timber cutting time is independent of changes in a site value tax, assuming such changes are fully capitalized into the market value of land. Adopting a continuous-time theoretical model that incorporates an imperfect capital market, it is demonstrated why empirical evidence might reject this hypothesis of "fiscal neutrality." For. Sci. 33(3):763-766.
