ABSTRACT

Theory suggests that large firms are more likely to engage in lobbying activities and have better bargaining positions against their host governments than smaller entities. Conditional on jurisdiction size, public policy choices are thus predicted to depend on the shape of the jurisdiction's firm size distribution, with more business-friendly policies being implemented if economic activity is concentrated in a small number of entities. We assess this prediction using the German local business tax as a testing ground. Conditional on jurisdiction size, we find that higher concentration of economic activity is associated with lower local business tax rates. The effect is quantitatively moderate though, suggesting that the rising economic importance of large businesses is unlikely to trigger significant shifts in the design of statutory tax...
