The Forum on Tax Administration aims to influence the environment within which tax systems operate, to move away from a confrontational dialogue to more constructive engagement with taxpayers.


The Forum on Tax Administration (FTA) was created in 2002 and is a unique forum on tax administration for Commissioners from 50 OECD and non-OECD countries, including members of the G20. Our vision is to create a forum through which Commissioners can identify, discuss and influence relevant global trends and develop new ideas to enhance tax administration around the world.

Our key aim is to improve taxpayer services and tax compliance by helping tax administrations increase the efficiency, effectiveness and fairness of tax administration and reduce the costs of compliance. To ensure that the results of our work are available to as many tax administrations as possible, we publish the results of our key studies in the form of reports and information or guidance notes in the tax administration guidance series.
