Tax evasion levels and the key measures to tackle it in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean

For some years now the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) has been increasingly drawing attention to the urgent need to mobilize a greater flow of domestic resources throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, in order to achieve the priority goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. For the countries of the region, this requires a series of targeted efforts to increase the tax base through specific reforms of their main tax collection instruments (such as value added tax and income tax). Additional innovations or modifications could likewise be applied to other taxes. It is also fundamental that countries ensure the effective collection of fiscal resources that should already be generated by their respective tax systems.
