The use of environmental taxes for pollution problems without spillovers is studied in a multi-jurisdictional setting. The problem is studied using the standard Mintz & Tulkens (1986) model for interjurisdictional tax competition. This is a model with 2 regions, two tradeable private goods: labour and a private consumption good which can be taxed at the production level and one non tradeable local public good. It is demonstrated that the tax competition literature results can not be translated to the environmental tax competition problem for externalities linked to production.
