Ammunition for the LVT case

E-mail Print PDF

Another paper which forms part of the IFS Mirrlees Review deals with administration and compliance, pointing out that with present transaction-based taxes, the costs fall primarily on business. There is a useful discussion there concerning the difference between who bears the burden of a tax and who is statutorily liable. It talks about distortion costs, efficiency costs, distribution costs, administration costs, enforcement costs, equity and rights, transparency, avoidance and evasion - all of which show up the present tax system in a poor light and provide useful ammunition for those making the LVT case.
