Comprehensive Tax Reform in Jamaica
When the fiscal situation of a country gets too far out of control, government will often call for a comprehensive review of the tax system to try to get back on a sustainable path. Jamaica is just such a case. The Government of Jamaica called in 2005 for a tax reform to address the fiscal problems. The articles in this special issue of Public Finance Review, and this overview, describe the analytic work that was undertaken to support Jamaicaâ€™s comprehensive tax reform efforts. The contributions here are in the approach taken, in the analytic work, and in the lessons from these efforts.
