Abstract: Abstract This paper shows that when a ‘noncooperative fiscal equilibrium’ of the Mintz-Tulkens 1986 model of tax competition is inefficient, Pareto improving changes are positive for the taxes of both regions, under concavity of the regions’ welfare functions. It also identifies a class of such equilibria that are always efficient.
