The Centre for Tax Policy and Administration (CTPA) has an exceptional opportunity for a senior tax economist as Deputy Head of the Tax Policy and Statistics Division. The OECD has developed strong leadership on taxation issues both international and domestic. Through the CTPA, the OECD employs over 100 lawyers, economists, statisticians, tax administrators and other staff who provide the intellectual input and contribute to advance the Strategic Orientations of the Secretary General, the objectives of the OECD’s Committee on Fiscal Affairs (CFA) and its 21 subsidiary bodies.
The successful candidate will assist the Chief Tax Economist in managing the division and providing intellectual leadership for a wide-ranging work programme that includes the effects of personal income tax on employment and the acquisition of skills, the taxation of household saving and residential property, climate change and environmental taxation, corporate income tax reform, tax competition, the economic effects of VAT changes, and the use of tax incentives and tax expenditures, as well as analyses of tax reform in relation to the fiscal consolidation programmes that many OECD member countries are putting in place.
