In July 2002, the Forum on Tax Administration (FTA) was established to develop a global response to tax administration issues in a collaborative fashion. The FTA aims to influence the environment within which tax systems operate: to move away from a confrontational dialogue to more constructive engagement with taxpayers. To do this, it brings together Commissioners from 45 OECD and non-OECD countries to share information and experience and to identify international good practices for resolving particular administration issues. To ensure that such information and experiences are made available to other revenue bodies, they are published in study reports or as Information or Guidance Notes in the tax administration guidance series.
