In a closed-economy neoclassical growth model, it is well established that a balanced-budget rule based on capital income tax can rule out indeterminacy. This paper shows, on the contrary, that such a balanced-budget fiscal policy can induce aggregate instability unrelated to economic fundamentals in a similar closed-economy setting enhanced with endogenous capital utilization. Moreover, we find that the capital depreciation allowance is another crucial factor in governing macroeconomic stability. Therefore, our results add a short-run motivation to recommend a fiscal policy with low capital income tax rate and high depreciation allowance.
