Obstacles to Increasing Tax Revenues in Low Income Countries
This ICTD Research in Brief is a two-page summary of ICTD Working Paper 15, by Mick Moore. This series is aimed at policy makers, tax administrators, fellow researchers and anyone else who is big on interest and short on time. We hope you enjoy it. This joint ICTD/UNRISD/SDC paper asks why governments of low-income countries do not raise more tax revenue, and explores options for increasing it.
