Taxes are among the most effective tools governments have for reducing inequalities and bringing about more inclusive growth. Two new OECD reports – Taxation of Household Savings and The Role and Design of Net Wealth Taxes - assess how governments are using the taxation of personal savings and wealth and offer recommendations for more effective and more efficient tax policy.
OECD’s head of Tax Policy and Statistics David Bradbury, Senior Tax Economist Alastair Thomas and Tax Economist Sarah Perret discussed the key findings and answered questions in a live webinar on 12 April 2018.
