A Guide to Tax Work for NGOs
Publication Type: Guides & Training Materials
October 2006 | By the International Budget Partnership
A Guide to Tax Work for NGOs is intended to help demystify revenue policy issues and give civil society budget groups the tools they need to influence revenue policy.
The main audience for the guide is civil society groups that focus on, or want to focus on, applied budget analysis. This would include groups that do not consider themselves to be “budget organizations” but that plan to use budget work as a way to strengthen their advocacy on the issues that are their primary focus. The guide discusses revenue issues, and especially taxes such as the value-added tax and personal income tax. It provides a basic description of different tax types, discusses some of the key debates, gives examples from a range of countries, and provides ideas for revenue-related projects that groups might want to undertake.
