Taxing Private Equity Profits
Posted by Victor Fleischer

I'm presenting my "Two and Twenty" paper today at UCLA on the taxation of partnership profits in private equity.  I argue that the status quo gives VCs and private equity fund managers an unwarranted opportunity to defer income and convert their labor income into capital gain, and I argue for reform. 

This article suggests the UK tax authorities have the same idea.  The mobility of capital will make it difficult for reform proposals, including my own, to succeed politically.

Vic, if it's okay, I'd love to read the paper. Where can I get a copy?

It's not quite ready for prime time, but I will post it to SSRN in a couple of weeks.
