Here’s a practical new book about the issues that tax lawyers often face in dealing with other countries’ tax systems or in confronting tax policy proposals in their own countries. This book discusses current issues in tax design, primarily for corporate income tax, but also dealing with VAT, natural resource taxation, and individual income tax. The contributors, several of them current and former IMF and OECD officials, are primarily tax legal drafting experts that the IMF has been using in its technical assistance projects. You’ll find a detailed description and analysis of such issues as:

  • a solution for eliminating the debt bias in the corporate tax system;
  • anti-base erosion rules;
  • coordinating tax accounting with financial accounting;
  • using anti-money laundering measures to enhance tax compliance;
  • VAT rules for extractive industries;
  • supplemental expenditure tax;
  • VAT design for developing countries;
  • impact of tax treaties on source country taxation;
  • unilateral measures in lieu of treaties; and
  • developing countries and exchange of information.
