In an era where poll taxes are generally derided, pursued only underhandedly, and denied by their own framers, any criticism of poll taxes is an easy case. Rather than adopting the more predictable normative position of rejecting poll taxes, this article seeks to extract what tax scholars and tax policymakers still have to learn from poll taxes. What emerges from my research on four distinct poll taxes applied by Anglophone governments in the 20th century is a new baseline for evaluating the administration of non-poll taxes, new evidence of the ways neutrality in statutory language cloaks the use of tax as a political weapon, and an enriched understand of the relationship between taxpaying and citizenship that goes beyond voting rights.

Two qualitative case studies of fleet vehicles in the US and Australia are presented that consider the effect of energy tax policy to increase light car zero-emission electric vehicles (ZEV) adoption in each jurisdiction. The article reflects on tax policies of selected European countries with EV uptakes that surpass the US and Australia. This research makes a substantial contribution to energy policy in the US and Australia by determining energy policies that can enhance the uptake of light car ZEVs, thereby linking to the United Nation’s target of reducing CO2 emissions in the transport sector. Recommendations are supported by analysis of case study transport emissions and government data. This article is significant because it presents strategies for more effectively using tax for energy policy in the US and Australia to increase the number of light car ZEVs. Taxation is seen as necessary to complement EV technology. The US case study finds tax changes will help to support the current US energy policy of increased uptake of electric vehicles. The Australian case study finds the government needs to enhance its energy policy by adopting tax changes that are nationally uniform in support of ZEVs in fleets.
