Summary
This book provides both an overview of taxation issues in Africa and an introduction to the political economy of policy reform in general. It reveals the successes and failures, challenges and opportunities of taxation in Africa. It offers an analysis of all aspects of the continent's tax regime. From tax evasion by multinationals and African elites to how ordinary people navigate complex webs of 'informal' local taxation. The chapters successively discuss: 1. Why does tax matter? 2. A new tax era in Africa? 3. Is Africa the victim of global forces? 4. What can Africa do in the face of international tax challenges? 5. Extractives and extraction: taxing oil, gas and minerals 6. Taxing at national level: rising to the challenge? 7. Small taxes and large burdens: informal and subnational revenues 8. Does taxation lead to improved governance? 9. The way forward
