Trends in social taxation
01 Jun 97 |
BULLETIN FOR INTERNATIONAL FISCAL DOCUMENTATION
Issue: Vol 51 No 6
This article is designed to supplement the debate about trends in taxation with an examination of social taxation. To this end, the article addresses two topics. first, it comments on discerned trends and possible trends in social taxation, reflecting on a century since the first social security schemes were introduced. Second, the review of trends is underpinned by an attempt to clarify what should be included in the discussion: what are social taxes, social changes and social contributions, and when should they be compared to other taxes?
