FTM Report Uganda 2016

Uganda is currently implementing a number of policy and administrative measures to generate revenues to finance service delivery and development projects. Revenues are being targeted from both tax and non-tax sources. Citizens are obliged by law to pay taxes, and the government is required to let them know how their taxes are being used. However, a majority of Ugandans do not demand such accountability from the government, because they do not know how to engage their representatives and leaders. This paper is intended to enable citizens, civil society organisations (CSOs), government and other key stakeholders to influence tax processes at different levels. Our ultimate goal is a fair, just and equitable tax system.
