Abstract
We analyze the impact of trust on bargaining behavior between auditor and auditee in a tax setting. We study the effect of interpersonal trust and trust in government on both taxpayer and tax auditor. In an experiment with variation in pairwise trust settings, we find evidence that both kinds of trust affect the bargaining behavior, albeit in different ways. While trust in government increases taxpayers’ tax offers, interpersonal trust may lead to more concessionary behavior of tax auditors moderated by trust in government. Our findings help tax authorities to shape programs to enhance compliance in an atmosphere of trust.
