The Commission on Taxation and Welfare has been tasked by government to independently consider how best the taxation and welfare systems can support economic activity and promote increased employment and prosperity in Ireland.
The Chair of the Commission on Taxation and Welfare, Professor Niamh Moloney, is seeking opinions on various elements of our taxation and welfare systems, in particular views on how public services are funded into the future by inviting organisations to make a submission to Your Vision, Our Future - the public consultation of the Commission on Taxation and Welfare.
The Commission is an independent body which has been asked by Government to “review how best the taxation and welfare system can support economic activity and income redistribution, whilst promoting increased employment and prosperity in a resilient, inclusive and sustainable way and ensuring that there are sufficient resources available to meet the costs of public services and supports in the medium and longer term.” The specific terms of reference for the Commission can be found at gov.ie/cotw.
The Commission wants to hear from as many people, groups and organisation as possible to ensure that a diverse range of experiences and perspectives inform the development of the report of the Commission, which is due in July 2022.
The closing date for submissions is 7 January 2022. You can make your submission here, Tá an comhairliúchán ar fáil i nGaeilge ag an seoladh sin freisin.
