Now more than ever, governments are striving to mobilise greater tax revenue domestically.
To do so, they are increasingly reaching out to inform and engage today’s – and future
– taxpayers. They aim to foster an overall “culture of compliance” based on rights
and responsibilities, in which citizens see paying taxes as an integral aspect of
their relationship with their government. Taxpayer education is the bridge linking
tax administration and citizens and a key tool to transform tax culture. Covering
innovative strategies in 28 countries, this publication offers ideas and inspiration
for taxpayer education, literacy and outreach. It helps revenue authorities in developing
countries to strengthen the tax morale and tax compliance of their citizens.
