The importance of faith: Tax morale and religiosity
Torgler, Benno (2006) The importance of faith: Tax morale and religiosity. Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, 61(1), pp. 81-109.
The intention of this paper is to analyze religiosity as a factor that potentially affects tax morale. For this purpose, a multivariate analysis has been done with data from the World Values Survey 1995–1997, covering more than 30 countries at the individual level. Several variables, such as church attendance, religious education, active membership in a church or a religious organization, perceived religiosity, religious guidance and trust in the church have been analyzed. The results suggest that religiosity raises tax morale.
