Taxing the Wealthy - Why It's Important

“According to a 2014 report by Oxfam, more than half of tax revenue in Latin American and the Caribbean comes from consumption taxes, such as VAT, which means that the poorest spend a greater share of their income to pay taxes than the rich.

‘Tax systems should be balanced toward more progressive models, in which wealth and property and not only consumption and wages are taxed more,’ the report says.

Taxes on income and profits in Latin America accounted for 25.4 percent of revenues in 2011, compared to 33.5 in the countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, a 34-member body of high-income nations with high social development.

While tax collection in the region has improved over the last decade, generally speaking, tax structures still rely heavily on flat, consumption taxes, meaning those with less are disproportionately putting their share in.

An increase in public revenue through taxing the wealth of the rich – as Oxfam and many others have advocated – could provide regional government’s with funding stream for numerous endeavors including social welfare programs, which have been instrumental to the region’s poverty reduction strategy and have also buoyed virtually all sectors in Latin America.

Recently, Ecuador chose to increase the tax burden on the country’s privileged, announcing plans to adopt a new inheritance tax starting with a 2.5 percent tax on sums above US$35,400 and climbing in increments, up to 77.5 percent on inheritances above US$849,600. In all, only the top 2 percent of the population would have to pay the tax.

Currently just 4.1 percent of Ecuador’s income comes from taxes on income and profits, compared to an average of 11.4 percent in OECD nations. ​The legislative bill, which is still being discussed in Ecuador’s national assembly, marks the latest initiative in a series of changes to the country’s tax code.

The Andean nation has already approved an increase on income tax of financial institutions as well as a new levy on certain credit operations, which is intended to go toward financing improvements in the health sector including cancer treatment, among other measures.”
