On September 13, the OECD launched a substantial report on the tax policy reforms implemented last year by advanced nations.
The report – "Tax Policy Reforms 2017 – OECD and Selected Partner Economies" – highlights that 2016 saw many countries undertake reforms to either boost economic growth, address inequalities, or drive behavioral change.
The report provides comparative information on the tax reforms that were implemented, legislated for, or announced last year in the 35 OECD countries and Argentina and South Africa.
The report tracks reforms to personal income tax, social security contributions, corporate income tax, value-added or general sales taxes, excise duties, environmental taxes, and property taxes across countries and tracks key tax policy trends in these areas over time.
