Tax Arbitrage with Risk and Effort Aversion - Swedish Lottery Bonds 1970-1990
Abstract: Swedish lottery bonds are valuable tax shelters before the
tax reform of 1991. By trading around the coupon lottery, high-tax
investors with capital gains from the stock market shift their tax
liability to low-tax investors. The uncertainty of the coupon lottery and
the effort of verifying the winning lottery bond numbers are a nuisance to
tax traders. We investigate how the Treasury (issuer), market makers
(banks), and lottery bond investors respond to those frictions.
