Tax Policy Reforms 2017

OECD and Selected Partner Economies

Published on September 13, 2017


This report is the second edition of Tax Policy Reforms: OECD and Selected Partner Economies, which is an annual publication that provides comparative information on tax reforms across countries and tracks tax policy developments over time.

This year’s report covers the tax reforms that were implemented, legislated or announced in 2016. Two non-OECD countries, Argentina and South Africa, have been included in this year’s edition, in an effort to progressively expand the scope of the publication to key partner economies. Monitoring tax policy reforms and understanding the context in which they were undertaken is crucial to informing tax policy discussions and to supporting governments in the assessment and design of tax reforms.

Editorial by the OECD secretary-general

"Ongoing work to monitor and compare tax policy reforms over time and across a wide range of countries, both in OECD members and in key partner economies, is crucial to informing tax policy discussions and supporting governments in the assessment and design of reforms. It will help ensure that future tax policies play their role in supporting growth, fairness and environmental sustainability".


"Les travaux actuels de suivi et de comparaison des réformes fiscales dans la durée et dans un large éventail de pays, membres de l’OCDE et partenaires clés, sont indispensables pour éclairer les débats et aider les pouvoirs publics à appréhender et à concevoir leurs réformes. Ils contribueront à faire en sorte qu’à l’avenir, les politiques fiscales jouent leur rôle d’appui à la croissance, à l’équité et à la durabilité environnementale".
