This article summarizes the results of interviews conducted in Armenia to determine the reasons why Armenians evade the payment of taxes. The two main reasons the author found were that tax evasion is easy because there is no mechanism in place to collect taxes and there is a widespread feeling that people do not owe anything to the government because the government does not do anything for them.
