Grace Perez-Navarro plays a key role in all the OECD’s tax work including the tax challenges of digitalization, the BEPS Project, improving international tax cooperation, and engaging developing countries in OECD tax work. Since joining the OECD in 1997, she has held several key positions, including having led the OECD’s tax work on bank secrecy, e-commerce, harmful tax practices, money laundering and tax crimes, and strengthening all forms of administrative cooperation between tax authorities.

Prior to joining the OECD, she was a Special Counsel at the IRS Office of the Associate Chief Counsel (International) where she coordinated guidance to field offices on international tax issues, oversaw litigation of international tax issues, negotiated TIEAs and treaties, and reviewed regulations, rulings and other policy advice.
