The Impact of Income Tax and Redistribution of Tax Money on Productivity, Satisfaction, and Perceptions of Fairness

Consumers face different levels of taxation and redistribution of tax money, which can influence perceptions and behavior. Across four studies, we show that people’s intuitions of how different income tax schemes influence productivity, satisfaction, and perceptions of fairness do not match how people actually respond in an experimental pay-per-performance setting.
