Paying our Way: Tax reform (2010)

As part of our ongoing commitment to inform progressive public and policy debate, in 2010 the Community Platform commissioned TASC to analyse Ireland’s tax system. We asked TASC to compare our tax system to our EU counterparts and to provide an outline of what a progressive tax system could look like. The resulting research, produced by Michael Taft, represents a significant challenge to the prevailing policy consensus on this issue. It challenges many of the myths underlying support for Ireland’s current low tax model. It provides much needed comparative and empirical evidence in support of arguments for progressive reform.
