Part II surveys general influences on Fund staff with implications for tax work. Part III outlines the relationship between Fund-supported programs and changes in tax systems. Part IV focuses on the structure, rather than the level, of taxation. It outlines in broad terms the prevalent thinking of Fund staff on the structure of taxation.
