Tax administrations meet on "Panama Papers"


13/04/2016 - A special project meeting of the Joint International Tax Shelter Information and Collaboration (JITSIC) Network took place at the OECD in Paris on Wednesday 13 April, bringing together senior tax administration officials from countries worldwide to discuss opportunities for obtaining data, co-operation and information-sharing in light of the “Panama Papers” revelations. 


Participants from a number of countries - including members of the OECD and the G20 - exchanged views on the Panama Papers and explored mechanisms for co-operation.


Follow-up will be ensured by each tax administration, in accordance with its own domestic laws and regulations as well as information-sharing agreements that governments have in place between them. The discussions are confidential and the OECD is not privy to any taxpayer specific information.


JITSIC is a grouping of tax officials who exchange views, information and practices at an operational level. It is a network of the OECD Forum on Tax Administration.
