About this product
- DescriptionThis is a study of the constraints on fiscal systems imposed by problems of institutions, administration and incentives in Third-World and post-socialist ecomies. The contributors examine instutions and their impact from different perspectives. The essays tackle four basic topics: the administration of indirect taxation; politics and incentives in fiscal federalism; organizational design and tax compliance; and reputation and opportunism in taxation. Chapters consider the problems of tax evasion and corruption and consider ways to combat them, including privatization of tax collection efforts; the use of value-added tax (VAT) programmes; and increases in functional specialization with the tex bureaucracy. The contributors also analyze methods of identifying and quantifying tax evasion and discuss ways to provide appropriate incentives for compliance for tax administrators as well as tax payers. Finally, chapters consider the negative incentives to investment created when the government engages in opportunistic taxation. Intended to promote discussion between ecomists and n-ecomists working on these problems as well as between academics and practitioners, this book should be of interest to anyone invovled in tax policy or tax administration.
