Corporate finance often fails to address real-world problems such as federal tax policy or inequity in the taxation of different ownership forms. To elaborate, capital structure theory fails to fully address how maximizing firm value can also simultaneously maximize federal tax revenue or how inequity in taxation affects firm valuation. This Special Issue seeks two general types of research. First, we seek to solicit valuation models built on capital structure theory that compute a maximum firm value for the two major ownership types of pass-through entities (where all taxes are paid at the personal level) and C corporations (where taxes are paid at both the corporate level and personal level). Second, this Special Issue aims to attract articles that apply extant or new capital structure models to financial problems. Besides applications of capital structure theory to maximize federal tax policy and firm value related to inequity in taxing ownership forms, researchers are free to apply a capital structure model to other practical problems of interest.
