Tax commission launches consultation process

The Commission on Taxation and Welfare is looking for the public’s views on various elements of the taxation and welfare systems – in particular the future funding of public services.

The independent body was set up earlier this year to look at how the tax and welfare systems could support the economy and increase employment, while also ensuring that there were enough resources available to fund public services in the longer term.

Launching the consultation process, commission chair Professor Niamh Moloney said that the body wanted to hear from as many people, groups and organisation as possible.

"You don’t need to be an expert on tax and/or welfare policy for your opinion to be valued,” she added.

The public consultation starts today (20 October), and remains open until 7 January 2022. The commission is due to report in July 2022.
