Updated minimum tax paper

While noteworthy things keep happening around the United States and indeed the world, I have been continuing my shelter-in-place and doing some work. I have just now posted on SSRN a revised version of my paper, What Are Minimum Taxes, and Why Might One Favor or Disfavor Them?

This version takes advantage of excellent comments that I received from several readers, and also has a new, very short intro. It also has a much shorter and more to-the-point abstract, which goes like this:

"Minimum taxes (including global minimum taxes) have serious drawbacks, and generally make sense, if at all, only if otherwise superior options must be ruled out for reasons of optics or political economy. Yet, given the “compared to what?” question that haunts all real-world tax policymaking, one cannot reasonably say that they should never be used. Still, any such use should generally be contingent, reluctant, and based on understanding their structural deficiencies."

You can find the paper here.
