20/11/2017 - Tax burdens and revenue collection across the OECD countries are reaching levels not seen since before the global financial crisis. Nevertheless, the tax mix varies enormously across the advanced economies.
How do tax levels compare across countries? What factors are driving the wide variation in tax burdens seen worldwide? How is the tax mix changing in the OECD, and on a country-by-country basis?
Revenue Statistics 2017 will be published on Thursday 23 November at 11h00. The publication provides annual data on government tax revenues, including the tax-to-GDP ratio, revenues collected by central, state and regional governments, and the relative importance of personal and corporate income tax, social security contributions and taxes on goods and services in the tax mix.
The publication will be freely accessible to accredited journalists on the OECD’s password-protected website from 11:00 a.m. CET.
