Tax evasion and uncertainty in a dynamic context. Economics Letters, vol. 126, pp. 171-175

 

Abstract:

We study optimal dynamic compliance decisions in an uncertain environment. Contrary to the static literature, greater uncertainty affects consumption, not the optimal tax evasion rule. Thus, audit and sanctions rather than fiscal uncertainty should be used to control tax evasion.
