       Value-Added-Tax (VAT): Impact on Market Vibrancy and Competitiveness with IFPRI
        under First Annual Pakistan Strategy Support Program (PSSP) Competitive Grants Program
        - sponsored by USAID Program in Pakistan
        - (Oct 2012 to Dec 2013) - Phase 1
          The New Growth Framework developed by the Planning Commission is an important step toward its
          modernization. Tax policy in Pakistan greatly influences these goals in a number of ways,
          but its role is not well understood. In particular, Value Added Taxation directly affects domestic
          commerce, entrepreneurship
and market competitiveness; tax concessions and exemptions are
          skewed in favour of large enterprises; and weak property tax regimes drive land informality which
          constrains land markets, housing, investment and revenue mobilization, hampering the growth
          potential of cities. These issues represent knowledge gaps for research and policy.

       Citizensí Voice and Public Accountability in Tax Collection Sector in the Central Punjab through
        Citizensí Voice Project of Trust for Democratic Education and Accountability (TDEA), Pakistan

          Increase citizens' voice and demands, establish participatory forums of citizens and civil society to      
          contribute to the policy making and engage with policy makers and facilitate oversight of relevant
          institutions in tax collection, promote informed public dialogue around Federal tax policy and
          administration; and run campaigns and media reporting for improved delivery of
          taxpayerís rights. (Link)
