Fiscal federalism network

Focus

  • Synthesising good practices in fiscal federalism

    This OECD Policy Paper combines insights from the cross-country research work of the Network on Fiscal Relations across Levels of Government and country experiences drawn from OECD Economic Surveys. The paper identifies a range of good practices on the design of country policies and institutions related to strengthening fiscal capacity, delineating responsibilities across levels of government and improving intergovernmental co-ordination. A revised version of this paper will appear in the next volume of Fiscal Federalism.

Digitalisation challenges and opportunities for subnational governments

Digitalisation challenges and opportunities for subnational governments
Published on April 20, 2020

The world economy and societies are going through a digital transformation that goes well beyond computerisation and use of information and telecommunications technologies. This transformation is creating opportunities and challenges for all levels of government in the areas of tax and expenditure policy and administration, service delivery and fiscal-financial management, and regulatory practices and policies. However, governments (especially sub-national ones, SNGs) often also face shortages of skills, equipment and physical infrastructure, while having to address emerging challenges in cyber security risk management and data protection. The digital transformation calls for cooperation among the different layers of administration in support of effective and efficient digitalisation of SNGs. This paper reviews and discusses these opportunities and challenges.

 

Twenty years of tax autonomy across levels of government

Twenty years of tax autonomy across levels of government
Published on December 4, 2019

The Network on Fiscal Relations has been assessing the degree of sub-central government tax autonomy in OECD countries for almost two decades. This paper provides an in-depth description of the methodology used to characterise tax autonomy. After summarizing the wide-spread use of the tax autonomy results by researchers addressing a range of policy issues, the paper highlights recent trends in sub-central government revenues and presents the results of the latest survey of tax autonomy, completed in 2017. Using the OECD’s tax autonomy methodology, the paper for the first time assesses local government tax autonomy in the 50 US states. The analysis reveals that US local governments have somewhat more tax autonomy than local governments in the average OECD country. The paper includes suggestions for further refinements of the tax autonomy methodology.
