The OECD's Tax Administration Comparative Information Series, which commenced in 2004, examines the fundamental elements of modern tax administration systems and uses an extensive data set, analysis and examples to highlight key trends, recent innovations and examples of good practice. The primary purpose of the series is to share information that will facilitate dialogue among tax officials and other stakeholders on important tax administration issues, including on identifying opportunities to improve the design and administration of their systems both individually and collectively.
