Greetings from the Administrator

on reforms for a more realistic and specific tax system
The Center will do its best to contribute to a fair, rational tax system and administration.

The Korea Institute for Public Finance (KIPF) has so far been focusing on directions for long-term tax policies based on economic analysis, and there was some recognition that research on the legal aspects and administration of taxes needs strengthening. Thus, KIPF established the Center for Tax Law and Administration in Oct, 2005 under the approval of the KIPF board of directors.

The Center for Tax Law and Administration will invite experts in the areas
of tax law, tax accounting and tax administration with practical experience,
and focus on the study of reforms for a more realistic and specific tax system.
Through survey and analysis of tax law and administration, we will provide basic
data for formulating tax policies and provide working level support for the
Government’s tax system reform. Furthermore, through a speedy survey
of the tax trends of major countries
and the provision of their results to the Ministries concerned, we will try to
contribute to developing the nation’s tax system and administration.


We believe that only through a qualitative growth inour national economy
added to a quantitative growth, will the quality of public life improve and will
our country join the leading nations of the world. Above all, a fair, rational tax system
and administration will be crucial to making this happen, and we promise that this
Center will do its best to contribute to such a fair, rational tax system and administration. Thank you very much!
