Perspective of an Optimal Taxation System

Although a great effort has recently been made to remove the barriers to the way ahead of INTA, these efforts have mainly been restricted to some modifications in taxation rules and regulations. It is likely to say that the most serious governmental plan for a full modification of the Iranian taxation system launched in the 3rd Development Plan. According to article 59 of the 3rd Economic, Social, and Cultural Plan, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Finance was assigned to modify the overall structure of the Iranian taxation system. Modifying the regulations of direct taxes in 2001, passing the Law of Toll Collection in the year 2002, and creating an independent taxation organization were among some of the major modifications stipulated in the 3rd Development Plan.

Having in mind the current problems of the Iranian taxation system, the perspective of a comprehensive tax program is focused on identifying and tracing the information flows of economic activities throughout the country, processing the data gathered, assessing taxes, and finally collecting the right taxes. However, the actual fulfillment of these processes necessitates arranging and executing other relevant supporting processes. Bearing in mind the perspective of an appropriate tax situation originating in the experiences of successful taxation systems throughout the world, to achieve a proper tax situation wherein tax collection costs decrease, taxpayers’ levels of satisfaction increase, tax evasion moves down, and the tax income levels move up, will enhance the possibility of an actual accomplishment in the Iranian taxation system.
