OVERVIEW

The COVID-19 pandemic has been disrupting economies and society on a scale never witnessed before. To protect lives and livelihoods and ensure business continuity, governments have implemented a plethora of relief measures, including in the tax area, resulting in increased borrowing to unprecedented levels. The pandemic has also played a catalyst role in driving digitalization in government, presenting new challenges and opportunities. With vaccination being rolled out, governments slowly turn their attention to supporting the reopening of their economies and to the next phase of consolidation.

IMF’s Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD, IMF) and the Tax Administration Research Centre (TARC) will be hosting a two-day virtual event on ‘Tax Administration and Tax Policy Responses to COVID-19’ which will bring together practical experience from policymakers and frontier academic research by scholars. The event will focus on the lessons learned from the actions taken by governments to understand the role of the tax system in responding to a shock like COVID-19, i.e. the burden sharing, cash-flow support, tax compliance management, the adoption of digital solutions and the gradual transition between different phases of the pandemic (immediate response, support for the reopening, consolidation).
