Data sources

The data contained in the Tax Administration 2019 report comes from the International Survey on Revenue Administration (ISORA) and can be accessed below. The ISORA survey is a multi-organisation international survey to collect national-level information and data on tax administration. It is governed by four partner organisations: CIAT, the IMF, IOTA and the OECD.

For the 2018 survey round, launched in May 2018, the Asian Development Bank agreed to participate along with the four partner organisations. The 2018 ISORA survey collected data for fiscal years 2016 and 2017. While the ISORA survey is completed by more than 150 administrations through the IMF’s Revenue Administration Fiscal Information Tool (RA-FIT), the 58 administrations included in the Tax Administration 2019 report corresponds to the group of administrations supported by the OECD and includes all the members of the OECD Forum on Tax Administration.
