WHO WE ARE?
MAIN FOCUS AND VISION
ALTAX is an Albanian think - tank initiative aiming at a new approach to Albanian - European fiscal and economic policy. The primary goal is to promote education in taxation, help and assist the taxpayers and interested parties (students, field experts, civil servants) with the proper expertise. On the other hand the cooperation with the academics and fiscal experts helps to expand and create an comprehensive audience in help of increasing of fiscal capacities in Albania and Kosovo.
The approach that drives our activity is to increase understanding between the government and the public on issues related to the competitiveness of the economic system, fiscal model performance, promoting public confidence in politics, promoting civil society in Albania, and promoting local public services and appropriate and sustainable central.
One important goal for us is to achieve a more efficient and less complex tax system for all. Our comments and recommendations on tax issues are made solely in order to achieve this aim; we are an entirely apolitical organization.
ALTAX goals also comprise a strategic review of initiative by Albanian civil society organizations that enhance transparency and accountability in the budget, revenues and expenditure. The purpose of the strategic review is to establish a broad national budget oversight platform to build awareness of the need for open budgets and pressure on government institutions to be open. Transparency in government decision-making and use of government data will increase further trust of citizens, improve accountability of policy makers and lead to common European objectives. The envisaged actions to enhance transparency, will improve the ability of people to have their voice heard and make suggestions for policy actions.
