Revenue-seeking governments may well find it to their advantage to strike bargains with citizens whose assets they seek to tax. To induce a greater willingness to pay taxes, they may defer to the citizens’ policy preferences. Such bargains may become more beneficial from the citizens’ point of view the more mobile the assets the citizens hold. These claims form the central themes of this paper.
