Corruption, The Re-Design of Tax Systems and the Value-Added Tax
Although the transition from socialism may improve the transparency and efficiency of the tax system, both democratic politicians and tax officials may still bias its design. In the case of corrupt tax officials, they will maximise opportunities for discretion and personal interviews. The simplification of the tax system, including the introduction of a value-added tax, is widely used strategy of economic reform which has also been advocated as an anti-corruption device. This article suggest that, even though VAT collection methods are not corruption-proof, the VAT has been used with some success in Indonesia to reduce corruption in revenue collection.
