Practice

and Problems

VAT has been referred to as “the quintessential modern tax” and it is anticipated that if the trend toward higher VAT rates and fewer exemptions continues, the VAT will supplant the income tax as the most important single source of revenue for several governments before the end of the century.

This book, by Alan A. Tait, illustrates how, using one tax as an example, practical considerations influence the form, shape, and structure of a tax; how theory influences the choice of particular forms of tax, and also how important practical considerations of both tax officials and taxpayers are in modifying tax structures. Available in English. 1988. US$29.50.

English, (paper) xii + 450 pp. ISBN 1-55775-012-2.
