Welcome to the International Tax Compact!

The International Tax Compact (ITC) is an informal platform that aims to enhance domestic revenue mobilisation in partner countries, and to promote fair, efficient and transparent tax systems.

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.
