Comments on the draft agenda of the UN Tax Committee

Call for Public Comment

The UN Tax Committee is seeking input into their work plan for the next four years. The draft agenda as it currently stands was drawn up during the 22nd session by the previous Committee membership, with inputs from the member states and other observers participating.

The Committee is inviting stakeholders to share their thoughts on what its work plan could be before its next virtual session, with the goal to ensure that the Committee’s agenda is practical and relevant to developing countries and includes the most pressing challenges they face in tax policy and administration.

Written comments on the draft agenda should focus on draft agenda item 5, which contains a list of possible issues, and address the following three topics:

  1. Areas that should be given priority from the identified issues, including the reason for prioritizing the identified issue(s) and the expected outcome from the proposed Committee work;
  2. Any other issue(s) that should be included in the Committee’s work plan, considering its mandate, composition and expected outcome from the proposed Committee work; and
  3. Any additional value that the Committee can bring to developing countries in their tax policy and administration in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic response, recovery and resilience building and efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
