A Structural Analysis of Variables Affecting Income Taxes in Swedish Municipalities (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this report was to investigate which factors determine municipal taxes in Sweden.The aim was also to find out whether and how the forms of political rule are significant covariates. A multiple regression analysis was performed using data from 289 municipalities. The analysis resulted in five dierent models, of which a model based on municipal grouping was found to be most satisfactory. In all of the models, there are effects from the form of political rule. The results indicate that socialist municipalities have higher tax rates than non-socialist. Also, coalitions between socialist and non-socialist parties have higher taxr ates than purely non-socialist rules. Finally, majority rules have higher tax rates compared to minorities.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna rapport var att undersöka vilka faktorer som avgör primärkommunalskatteni svenska kommuner. Syftet var även att ta reda på huruvida formerna av politisk tstyre är relevanta förklaringsvariabler. En multipel regressionsanalys genom fördes med data från 289 av Sveriges kommuner. Analysen resulterade i fem modeller, där en modell som baserats på kommungruppsindelning befanns vara mest tillfredsställande. I alla modellernns tydliga effekter från formen av politiskt styre. Resultaten indikerar att vänsterstyrda kommuner har högre skatter än borgerligt styrda. Vidare har blocköverskridande styren högre skatter än borgerligt styrda kommuner. Slutligen resulterar majoritetsstyren i högre primärkommunalskatt än minoritetsstyren.
