Quality of Taxation in the Country Specific Recommendations

Following the Commission's adoption of recommendations, Commissioner Šemeta said:

"The quality of taxation can be a "make or break" factor in Member States' efforts to consolidate budgets and establish sustainable economic growth. Our recommendations today in the field of taxation are focussed largely on shifting away from distortive taxes towards growth-friendly ones; tackling tax evasion; and broadening tax bases to make revenue collection more efficient."
