Abstract: Abstract This study examines the effect of financial development on non-resource tax revenue performance in developing countries through the international trade channel. The empirical analysis has relied on a sample of 104 developing countries over the period 1980–2014, and used the two-step system Generalized Methods of Moments (GMM) approach. Results show that financial development exerts a positive effect on non-resource tax revenue performance. Interestingly, this positive effect takes place through a higher trade openness, a greater export product diversification and a higher share of manufactured exports in total export products. The analysis, therefore, highlights some avenues through which deepening domestic financial markets can affect tax revenue performance in developing countries.
