Welcome to the International Tax Compact!
The ITC is an initiative to strengthen international cooperation with developing and transition countries with the objective of enhancing domestic resource mobilisation. The ITC aims to promote effective, fair and efficient tax systems and combat tax evasion and inappropriate tax practices on a global scale.
As an informal and action-oriented platform, the ITC brings together a broad variety of development actors, including policymakers, experts, academics and civil society leaders working in the field of development and taxation. By combining their strengths and pooling the available capacities and resources, the ITC adds value to initiatives in the field of taxation and development without duplicating existing structures and efforts.
