07/09/2017 - Countries worldwide are increasingly using tax policy reforms as part of wider strategies to boost growth, address inequalities and drive behavioural change.
A new report, Tax Policy Reforms 2017 – OECD and Selected Partner Economies, provides comparative information on the tax reforms that were implemented, legislated or announced in 2016 in the 35 OECD countries, as well as in Argentina and South Africa.
The report tracks reforms to personal income tax, social security contributions, corporate income tax, value-added/general sales tax, excise duties, environmental taxes and property taxes across countries and trackskey tax policy trends in these areas over time.
Pascal Saint-Amans, Director of the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration, will present the report’s key findings at 3 p.m. on Wednesday 13 September during a press conference at the OECD. The presentation will be webcast live for journalists unable to attend at: http://video.oecd.org/.
To register, to request advance copies of the report or to propose questions for the webcast, journalists are invited to email Lawrence Speer in the OECD Media Office (+33 1 4524 7970).
