Windfall Profits Tax will Have Negative Economic Impact on Retirement Accounts

The study was conducted by Dr. Robert Shapiro and Dr. Nam Pham.
Dr. Pham is an economic consultant to NDP Group and former Chief Economist of the Asia Region for Standard & Poor's. Drs. Shapiro and Pham examined Senate Bill 1631, the Windfall Profits Rebate Act of 2005, over a five year period. In addition to the reduced earnings on pension accounts, the study found that the net revenue of the tax would be about half the levels anticipated by Congress because the payments would deductible under the corporate income tax. The measure would also discourage domestic oil production causing the US to be even more dependent on foreign sources. The data in this study shows that a substantial share of the cost of a Windfall Profits Tax would be borne by retirees and those saving for retirement. Drs. Shapiro and Pham explain that "the various forms of retirement funds and savings, held by both current retirees and current workers, hold approximately 50 percent of their total assets in equities, of which approximately 4.3 % are shares in US domestic integrated oil and gas companies."
