|In its report “Financing the European Union” (COM 2004, 505 final) the European Commission proposed the introduction of an EU Tax as own resource. According to the Commission the adoption of a tax at the EU level would make it possible to overcome the main drawbacks of the current own resources system, i.e. the absence of a direct link to EU citizens, dependence on transfers from national treasuries, allocation of economic resources and unjustified complexity. |
This book deals with whether the present legal framework of the EC provides a sufficient legal basis for an EU Tax or if an amendment to the Treaty is necessary. Moreover, it takes a closer look at the compatibility of an EU Tax with the financial systems of the Member States and the administrative handling of such a tax. Another issue is the conformity of an EU Tax with the fundamental freedoms and the question whether the introduction of a tax at the EU level can lead to double taxation problems.
