Event: Fostering taxpayer education to enhance public trust in tax and help achieve SDGs

Tuesday February 8, 2022 | 9:00AM – 10:45AM EST


Providing citizens with the information to understand how the tax system works, the rights and obligations of taxpayers, and how citizens can influence the evolution of the tax system, is vital to building public trust in tax systems—a key component in tax morale or, the intrinsic willingness to pay tax. A recent report from the OECD, Building a Tax Culture, Compliance and Citizenship: A Global Source Book on Taxpayer Education (Second Edition) shows that taxpayer education can be a key tool to boost the willingness of individuals and businesses to voluntarily pay tax, and play a vital role at the heart of mobilizing the tax revenues urgently needed to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

IFAC and ACCA, in collaboration with the OECD, are delighted to invite you to a lively discussion revolving around the three main approaches to taxpayer education identified in the report—teaching tax, communicating tax, and supporting taxpayers directly in compliance—and how to foster effective collaboration among the key actors.
