Fiscal Capacity and Tax Revenues in Uganda

Fiscal capacity is one of the most important constraints on economic growth (Besley and Persson, 2013). In developing countries, the state’s ability to tax its citizens is typically limited by (a) the cost of acquiring accurate information on taxable activities, and (b) the tax agency’s capacity to enforce the tax rules. The literature has highlighted the central role of information flows for fiscal capacity (Kleven, Kreiner, and Saez, 2009), and of civil servants’ characteristics on government capacity/performance (e.g. Dal Bo, Finan, and Rossi, 2013).

The IGC is also welcoming requests from policymakers and development partners in Liberia and Sierra Leone for the commissioning of research on urgent or time-sensitive policy issues.
