Abstract: The paper seeks to analyze the political economy of determining own tax revenue and selective state taxes of Andhra Pradesh (AP), India. The study suggests that the own tax revenue and revenue from selective state taxes of AP are mainly determined by a set of economic and need-based factors, rather than political factors. The political dummies like Congress government dummy and election year dummy are insignificant in influencing the own tax revenue, and other state taxes except tax on vehicles. But in many cases the coefficients of these political dummies are found to be negative, possibly signaling that the growth in tax revenues is undermined by political power shift and compromises.
