24/11/2022 - Two new OECD reports to be published on Wednesday 30 November provide internationally comparable statistics and analysis designed to inform the tax policy debate:
Revenue Statistics 2022 provides data on government tax revenues from 1965 to 2021, including the tax-to-GDP ratio, revenues collected by central, state and regional governments, and the relative importance of personal and corporate income tax, social security contributions and taxes on goods and services in the tax mix. This year’s edition presents tax revenue data for the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a special feature which examines changes in revenues from different tax types in 2020 and 2021, in light of changing economic conditions and evolving policy measures during the first two years of the pandemic.
Consumption Tax Trends 2022 presents cross-country detailed comparative data on consumption tax rates, tax bases and design trends in OECD member countries. It also describes a range of other consumption taxation provisions on tobacco, alcoholic beverages, motor vehicles and aviation fuels.
