Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, a theoretical model of tax evasion, proposed by Allingham and Sandmo, is briefly presented. This model tries to explain the taxpayer's decision to reveal only part of the taxable income and to evade taxes in this way. The main parameters of the model are personal income, the rates of tax and penalty, probability of the tax audit. By the method of comparative statics it is possible, at least partially, to evaluate the influence of changes of the model's parameters on a person's decision to evade tax.
