Abstract

The Trump administration’s most permanent change to tax policy will not come in the form of executive action or signature legislation, but will stem from the way in which Trump himself has undermined tax compliance and lauded tax evasion – both in words and by example. These effects are not easily mitigated, as unlike tax rates there is no political or legislative mechanism through which social norms can be effectively changed.

Keywords: tax, tax policy, trump, morale
