Tax Morale and Compliance Behavior: First Evidence on a Causal Link

Martin Halla
Published Online: 2012-04-18 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/1935-1682.3165


Recent literature on tax evasion emphasizes the importance of moral considerations to explain compliance behavior. As a consequence scholars aim to identify factors that shape this so-called tax morale. However, the causal link between tax morale and actual compliance behavior is not established yet. Exploiting exogenous variation in tax morale – given by the inherited part of tax morale of American-born from their ancestors country of origin – our Two-Stage Least Square Estimation provides first evidence on a causal effect of tax morale on the size of the underground production.

This article offers supplementary material which is provided at the end of the article.

Keywords: tax morale; tax evasion; tax compliance; underground production
