Cross border taxation of European citizens
The European Commission has launched two public consultations and is creating an expert group to gather ideas on how to tackle any tax obstacles that hinder the cross-border activity of individuals in the single market
At the same time, the Commission has launched new web pages aimed at providing useful tax information to individuals who are active across borders.
One of the public consultations covers tax problems faced by citizens who are active across different tax jurisdictions.
It includes questions on problems that arise when individuals work or invest in other member states, as well as questions on measures already in place in certain member states to facilitate tax compliance.
The other consultation focuses on problems related to inheritance taxation, following the Commission’s recommendation to member states on this issue in December 2011.
