How is employment income taxed in low- and middle-income countries, how has this evolved over time, and how has it shaped taxpayer behaviour? Until now, there has been a scarcity of research regarding these questions. The new TaxDev employment income taxes dataset (EITD) aims to fill this gap and will provide a key resource for researchers and policymakers working on personal income taxation in low- and middle-income countries. The first iteration of the EITD includes comprehensive data for African countries; we aim to achieve global coverage in the near future.
ODI's Kyle McNabb and Hazel Granger presented the EITD and how to use it, and then explored the tax burdens facing salaried employees in African countries and how these evolved over the past 25 years. The webinar was chaired by Anne Brockmeyer (Institute for Fiscal Studies), and the expert discussion was led by Sanjeev Gupta (Center for Global Development), and Nara Monkam (African Tax Administration Forum).
