Release of Revenue Statistics in Latin America and the Caribbean 2020


Thursday 7 May 2020  17H00 Paris/ 11H00 Santiago time

Online Zoom presentation: registration


The ninth edition of the tax policy publication Revenue Statistics in Latin America and the Caribbean will be launched on Thursday 7 May on the occasion of an online Seminar hosted by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, the Inter-American Centre of Tax Administrations, the Inter-American Development Bank, the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration and the OECD Development Centre.


The report provides an overview of the main taxation trends from 1990 to 2018 in 26 Latin American and Caribbean economies. Its approach is based on the OECD Revenue Statistics database methodology, which provides internationally comparable data on tax levels and tax structures. This edition includes two special features: the first looks at non-renewable natural resource revenues and the second analyses equivalent fiscal pressure, enlarging the map of the region’s fiscal revenues.
