A European common tax space

'One of the obvious measures Europe could do in order to fill public coffers is to make sure that everybody pays fairly what they are supposed to pay, rather than general tax increases.'

Taxation is one of the few areas of financial policy which the general public has great interest in, as it affects their everyday life directly. But when we talk about it on a European level, it has much to do with tax distortion and competition in the single market.
