In two new OECD reports it is argued that, for governments in OECD countries, there is significant scope for tax reforms that simultaneously improve both the efficiency and fairness of their tax systems. According to Peter Kavelaars, Professor of Fiscal Economics at Erasmus School of Economics, there is also a lot of room to improve the way we tax savings in the Netherlands. 

In an interview with BNR Nieuwsradio, Peter Kavelaars explains the developments in the Netherlands with respect to capital taxation and shares his views on the topic.
