On 25 May, the FISC Subcommittee will host a public hearing on “How can technology help in reducing fraud and making tax compliance simpler?” from 09:00-10:30 (CET). The discussion comes in context of increased calls at an international level to clamp down on tax fraud and to reduce administrative burdens on taxpayers through technological advances.

Members of the FISC Subcommittee will hear the expert views of Vincent Drezet and Peter Green (Forum on Tax Administration, OECD) on the potential of technology to both facilitate taxpayer tax compliance and to fight against tax fraud and evasion. Furthermore, Commission representatives Stefka Dzhumalieva and Momchil Sabev of DG TAXUD will share insights on how to better strengthen digital governance and discuss the practical implementation of such measures for national tax administrations
