Steuerpolitische Aspekte der EU-Osterweiterung


  • Frank Bönker


Der vorliegende Beitrag gibt einen Überblick über die wichtigsten steuerpolitischen Aspekte der EU-Osterweiterung. Im ersten Teil wird zunächst gezeigt, dass die EU nicht erst seit der offiziellen Aufnahme der Beitrittsverhandlungen als ein wichtiger "externer Anker" (Berglöf und Roland 1997) der Steuerpolitik in den Beitrittsländern fungiert hat. Der zweite Teil arbeitet anhand eines Vergleichs von Steuerquoten und -sätzen den erreichten Stand der Angleichung der Steuersysteme zwischen alten und neuen Mitgliedern und das Potential für Steuerwettbewerb heraus. Im dritten Teil schließlich werden die fiskalischen und nichtfiskalischen Effekte der noch ausstehenden Steuerharmonisierungsmaßnahmen in den Beitrittsländern sowie die Perspektiven des Steuerwettbewerbs und der Steuerharmonisierung in der erweiterten EU diskutiert.
