Publication cover - Tax RiseCover image for Tax RiseIreland's tax take needs to increase if we're to have a better future:
> Believe it or not Ireland's tax take is low by international standards and particularly low in comparison to countries with much better services.
> We need to address this issue if we are to ensure that our current unemployment crisis does not become intractable.
> Increasing the tax take must be based on the principle that 'those who can are those who pay' - as we saw yesterday income inequality is growing in Ireland.

INOU Priority: equitably broaden the tax base.
