Abstract

There is a general feeling that people have a moral obligation to pay their fair share of taxes and that people who pay less than their fair share are acting immorally. Yet little is said about what fair share might be. The author explores this neglected aspect of the issue and develops some ethical guidelines for individuals to follow.
