Tax and Inequality


In cooperation with the International Tax Dialogue, India is very pleased to be hosting the 4th ITD Global Conference on Tax and Inequality. This conference provides a unique and timely opportunity to address to what extent taxation can be seen as part of the solution to growing inequalities in income and wealth. 


The use of plenary and parallel sessions, with active country participation, allows a peer dialogue between Ministers of Finance and Heads of Revenue Administration around the world. Issues addressed include:


  Design of growth-enhancing and equitable tax systems
Administrative challenges, issues and solutions for fair tax systems
Income taxes, progressivity and inequality across regions
Fair tax systems: vital for state-building and an exit from aid dependency
Informality, inequality and the role of the tax systems
Gender friendly tax systems and inequality
Taxation of elites and inequality


This is a high level conference, with senior level representation from over 100 countries expected to attend. A number of prominent academics and representatives of regional and international organizations will be also present at the conference.
