Tax Policy under the Curse of Low Revenues: The Case of Romania (Part II)
AbstractIt is an acknowledged fact that the tax revenue to GDP ratio in Romania is extremely low. This article suggests several ways through which budgetary revenues can be increased and, in the process, strengthen fiscal consolidation. Increasing tax collection rates, combating fiscal evasion and bringing parts of the shadow economy into the open would repair a fractured sentiment of fairness in the Romanian society. In particular, the results in this paper show that public sector revenues could rise by the equivalent of 4% of GDP if only half of the informal economy were to be brought to light.
