Abstract:
Ensuring that most people pay taxes is a central problem for most economies. Recently researchers have made some headway by focusing on social and psychological factors implicated in tax compliance.  Using the Subjective Group Dynamics theory (SGDT; Abrams et al., 2000) we address why and when people conform to tax evasion or derogate and punish tax evaders in their groups. We conducted two exploratory surveys (IT and UK) and run three experiments manipulating the salience of the group membership (high vs low), the perceptional frame of tax evasion (selfish vs. antisocial), the type of sanctions (personal vs group) and the threat to the subjective group identity (secure vs insecure identity). We expect to find that social identification reduces tax evasion contagion (and increases tax compliance) when tax evaders threat the group's subjective validity of norms and identity. Our results partially support our predictions and contribute to shed a light on the dark side of identification in dishonesty contagion.
