The EU's FairTax project addresses the impact of national tax systems on widening socio-economic and gender inequalities in the EU as well as fiscal sustainability and tax fairness issues. Our current Forum presents the FairTax research and policy recommendations based on identified structural problems. Ann Mumford and Åsa Gunnarsson look at the issue of sustainability within EU tax law. Marion Fink, Jitka Janová, Danuše Nerudová, Jan Pavel, Margit Schratzenstaller, Friedrich Sindermann-Sinkiewicz and Martin Spielauer look at gender equality and the impact of gender-differentiated changes in personal income. Reviewing case studies from a number of Northern European countries over the course of several years, Lotta Björklund Larsen and Lynne Oats share their findings on cooperative compliance in the taxation of large businesses - whose size and complex operations and structure differentiate them from other taxpayers. These ideas and more are elaborated in our special FairTax Forum.
