Abstract:

This presentation debunks the three myths often used to describe the tax structure in Latin America and the Caribbean discussed in More than Revenue: Taxation as a Development Tool, the 2013 edition of the IDB’s flagship series, Development in the Americas. First, that tax collection is very low; second, that taxes are not progressive; and third, that tax evasion is rampant.
