Summary
This paper explores how tax systems can be improved to meet demands for more economic fairness in Middle East and North African (MENA) countries. In recent years, IMF policy advice has focused on spending reforms - for example, how reforming energy subsidies can generate resources for pro-poor expenditures. But tax policy can play an important role in creating fairness, by determining how the tax burden is distributed, how much tax revenue is raised, and how taxation is implemented in practice. The analyses and recommendations in this paper are tailored to two distinct groups of countries: those with well-established non-hydrocarbon-based tax systems (mostly oil importers), and those with primarily hydrocarbon-based revenue systems (mostly oil exporters)
