Tax Us If You Can

Why Africa Should Stand Up for Tax Justice


This lucid introduction to tax justice in Africa sets out the causes and consequences of tax injustice and offers options for a fairer future. Although tax revenues are essential for establishing independent states of free citizens, taxes in Africa are often regressive, tax administration ineffective and many commodity exports from Africa are tax exempt. The influence of multilateral agencies on tax policy in Africa has, in many countries, decreased government revenues. Multinational companies exploit tax loopholes while secrecy jurisdictions enable tax evasion.

So what is the role of governments, parliaments and taxpayers? What needs to be done to achieve tax justice? The solutions suggested in this important book include raising awareness about tax issues, promoting a culture of tax compliance, increasing tax transparency and enhancing international cooperation on tax matters.

Tax Us If You Can was written by lead author Khadija Sharife, a regional correspondent for The Africa Report magazine, Africa project fellow for the World Policy Institute, and University of Kwa-Zulu Natal-Center for Civil Society (UKZN-CCS) researcher and writer.
