The tax identity in risk theory - a simple proof and an extension. (English) Zbl 1163.91430
Summary: By linking queueing concepts with risk theory, we give a simple and insightful proof of the tax identity in the Cramér-Lundberg model that was recently derived in [H. Albrecher and C. Hipp, Bl. DGVFM 28, No. 1, 13–28 (2007; Zbl 1119.62103)], and extend the identity to arbitrary surplus-dependent tax rates.
