Raising Taxes is the working title of a possible forthcoming Moist von Lipwig novel in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. However, the next Discworld book featuring Moist von Lipwig has been announced as Raising Steam. It is not yet clear if Raising Steam has replaced Raising Taxes, or if the latter title is one Pratchett will develop in the future.
Near the end of Making Money, Lord Vetinari and Drumknott discuss the need to pose new challenges to Moist von Lipwig after the Royal Bank has been completely reformed. They consider the feasibility of Moist von Lipwig becoming Taxmaster, a position currently held by seventy-four-year-old Mr. Creaser, who adheres to inflexible and outdated methods. Mr. Creaser will need to be compelled to retire, while Moist may not be so eager to accept a job that does not create friends.
