ITC Parallel Session
“Information Technology in Tax Administration in Developing Countries”
Miami, USA / 11 October 2016
During the CIAT Technology Meeting 2016, which was co-hosted by the ITC, the ITC held a parallel session on “Information Technology in Tax Administration in Developing Countries” featuring the presentation of the ITC/KfW study of the same name and followed by group discussions.
Participants were provided with an overview on the most important integrated software solutions for tax administrations and learned about experiences in 13 developing countries with IT-based tax reform. Enthusiastic discussions evolved around questions like “How do I find the best technological solution and develop the right implementation strategy?” “How do I anticipate potential mistakes that might imply heavy additional investments?” and experiences on factors for successful tax administration modernisation programmes were exchanged among the more than 60 participants from various countries.
