Strengthening Tax Systems in a Digitalizing World

October 20, 2019

701 18th Street, NW, Washington, DC │ Room JB1-080


This year’s Conference took the pulse of digitalization, which is proving to be a major force for change in the tax landscape. One key aspect is how and where to tax technology-related income—whether any special tax rules are needed or the broader tax system needs a more general update. On the administrative side, digital solutions have the potential to revolutionize how tax administrations enforce compliance and collect revenue though the application of artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies. Leading thinkers and practitioners from national governments, private sector, civil society, IMF, OECD and World Bank discussed how developing countries can best navigate this rapidly evolving field. There will be no live webcast for this event. The recording of the conference is now posted under the Session Recordings tab below.
