Our approach

Over the last fifteen years, there has been an explosion in research collaboration between Revenue Authorities and academic researchers. This has led to the production of exciting new evidence and innovative solutions to improve tax collection. Tax for Growth is going to build on this collaboration and support policymakers and researchers through:

  • Leveraging tax data to improve tax administration and feed into the design of equitable tax systems.
  • Cogenerating tax research projects with policymakers and researchers that drive frontier learning.
  • Generating synthesis research with policy recommendations that are actionable, policy-focused, and accessible.
