This volume examines the development of tax legislation from a comparative law perspective. Based on the experience of the IMF Legal Department in assisting many developing and transition countries to draft tax legislation, it comprises contributions by tax experts from around the world.

It aims to identify the legal issues that arise in the drafting of tax laws and to examine the various solutions, which have been devised in national legislation. A comparative tax law bibliography and a bibliography of the national tax laws of IMF member countries are included in appendix.
