In partnership with the Punjab Department of Excise and Taxation, we plan to randomly assign property tax collectors to different wage and incentive regimes. Our multi-treatment project design will enable us to measure the relative efficacy of a variety of incentive mechanisms, including salary increases, output-based pay and internal audits. This study will not only highlight policies for increasing resource mobilization in developing countries, but in a broader sense will provide insight into designing incentive mechanisms in government systems to improve public service delivery.
