Description The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (KSTA) will support the Government of Mongolia to reform business processes of the tax administration and develop a high quality system and applications design for Tax Administration Information Systems (TAIS).
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy A stable and efficient taxation system is fundamental in making the Government more efficient, accountable, and to build trust with the citizens of Mongolia and is needed to support national economic development in a sustainable manner. Adoption of information and communication technology (ICT) for taxation is a promising approach to improve efficiency and transparency in tax administration. Successful e-tax administration is expected to increase taxation efficiency by reducing administrative costs, enhancing transparency, providing convenience to taxpayer, and increasing tax compliance. The TAIS will need to address the administrative needs of the MTA and the tax compliance requirements of taxpayers. Therefore, a TAIS needs to incorporate various taxation functions for taxpayer registration, return filing, and tax payment and be an interactive system that supports various users (e.g., taxpayers, tax agency staff, and statutory auditors). Hence, establishing a comprehensive TAIS will require substantial investments and institutional capacities in a sustainable manner.
