This IMF Working Paper describes and tentatively quantifies likely tax spillovers from the U.S. 2017 corporate income tax reform. It calculates effective tax rates under various assumptions, and tentatively estimates that under constant policies elsewhere, the rate cut will reduce tax revenue from multinationals in other countries by on average 1.6 to 5.2 percent.
