Informal and religious taxes and transfers in Pakistan

Working papers

Written by Martin Evans, Mohammed Jehangir Khan

This paper focuses on religious taxes and transfers in Pakistan and assesses their role in a broad consideration of state-based and informal mechanisms of taxes and transfers to private households. The research is part of a wider appreciation of the roles of informal and formal taxes and transfers in overall fiscal policy and their impact on inequality and the distribution of household incomes.
