This paper will conduct a comparative study of different areas of tax law to assess whether and how the law can inadvertently enable or facilitate tax avoidance and tax evasion. The paper will propose a theoretical model of such unintended effect of tax law based on an interdisciplinary literature review on the criminogenic effects of the law (Savona et al, 2006; Albrecht and Kilchling, 2001) and, more generally, the unintended consequences of regulation (Grabosky 1995). The paper will also propose innovative policy solutions focused on turning law design into an instrument of prevention of tax avoidance and evasion.
