Do we need European taxes?
Europa Briefing: European taxes

 

In the publication series “Europa briefing” our colleagues from “Repair and Prepare: Strengthen the Euro“, a joint project between the Bertelsmann Stiftung and the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin, cover key topics of European politics and present possible scenarios. What is the problem? What might happen next? And what can politics do now? Each week, we will present one of these briefings for you on this blog. Alternatively, you can click here to find all the Europa briefings on the website of the project. The Europa briefings were published first in November 2017

 

This Week’s Briefing: European taxes

 

In the European Union, each member state is responsible for its tax system. Different national regimes help with tax competition, but can also lead to tax evasion or unfair rules in the Single Market. That is why better coordination or even standardisation of taxes is debated. What tax regulations are there already in the Single Market? What would be the advantages and disadvantages of a European tax? And what reforms are being discussed in Europe?

 

To get the answers to all these questions and more, simply click on the download window above to read the full brief.

 

„The Europa briefing series is published as part of “Repair and Prepare: Strengthen the euro”. For this project, the Bertelsmann Stiftung has joined forces with the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin to provide a roadmap for a stronger Economic and Monetary Union. You can find all briefings and further publications on the future of the Eurozone on the website of the project www.strengthentheeuro.eu.
