The following survey has two parts. In both parts, the questions will ask about your preferred decision in hypothetical scenarios. There are no right or wrong answers.

part3a_intro
The next several questions will ask your opinion on how much hypothetical individuals should pay in taxes.
Please consider each scenario carefully and give your honest opinion. The questions will give information about individuals' wealth and income.
The following definitions will be useful:
Wealth is the total amount of assets an individual owns minus any debt. Examples of assets include money in savings or retirement accounts, stocks, and the value of real estate owned; examples of debt include remaining mortgages, credit card balances, and student loans.
Labor Income is the amount of money an individual earns from work in a year. Examples include salary from employment, tips, and bonuses.
Loop from 1 to 7
Fill code of question 'part3a_maximum' executed
part3a (inheritance pay taxes for the year)
Consider a person who, at the end of 2018, had [order wealth values part 3[]] in wealth accumulated mostly from inheritance received from a deceased relative. His 2018 income was [order income values part 3[]]. How much should this person pay in taxes for the year?

part4a (transfer NOT told about initial allocation first)
Consider two people, person [A/B/C/D] and person [A/B/C/D]. Based on a coin flip, we have given $5 to person [A/B/C/D] and $15 to person [A/B/C/D].
You can now transfer money between persons [A/B/C/D] and [A/B/C/D]. Persons [A/B/C/D] and [A/B/C/D] are not told how much money they were initially given. If you decide to give Person [A/B/C/D] $X instead of $5, they will simply be told that they have been given $X, and will not know how much they started with. Nor will they know that there is another person (Person [A/B/C/D]) involved, or that a third party (you) determined the money they received.
Please indicate below what transfer, if any, you would make.

You can now transfer money between persons [A/B/C/D] and [A/B/C/D]. Persons [A/B/C/D] and [A/B/C/D] have already been told how much money we have given them. If you decide to give Person [A/B/C/D] $X instead of $5, they will be told that they now have $X instead of $5. They will not know that there is another person (Person [A/B/C/D]) involved, or that a third party (you) determined the money they received.
