Official Launch of the Global Tax Expenditures Database

The Council on Economic Policies (CEP) and the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) are launching the «Global Tax Expenditures Database» (GTED): www.GTED.net

The GTED was built by CEP and DIE to increase transparency on tax expenditures and the critical role they play in tax systems around the globe. It brings together the official and publicly available data on tax expenditures, as published by national governments since 1990, and makes it available free of charge online. The platform will also include a repository for blogs, working papers and further publications on tax expenditures as well as events on the topic.

Pascal Saint-Amans (OECD), MEP Paul Tang (European Parliament), Alexander Klemm (IMF) and other distinguished speakers will participate in the online conference to launch the database. For further information on how to register, please click here.
