A Fair Share of Tax: A Fiscal Anthropology of Contemporary Sweden By Lotta Björklund Larsen
English | PDF | 2018 | 142 Pages | ISBN : 3319697714 | 1.28 MB
This book takes a taxpayer's perspective on the relations taxation creates between people and their state. Björklund Larsen proposes that in order to understand tax compliance and cheating, we have to look beyond law, psychological experiments and surveys to also include tax collectors and taxpayers' practices. The text explores the view of taxes seen as citizen’s explicit economic relation to the state and implicit economic relation to all other compatriots. Björklund Larsen directs our gaze onto the concept of reciprocity, which is often proposed as an explanation in tax compliance research, and explores its diverse meanings and implications ethnographically.
