  • To provide guidelines and recommendations for articles that describe all aspects of Taxation.
  • To improve Wikipedia's coverage of Taxation by creating, expanding, and maintaining such articles.
  • To serve as the central point of discussion for issues related to Taxation articles in Wikipedia.

The broad objective of the Taxation Wikiproject is to expand the coverage and content of articles related to taxes. More specifically, we need to have more taxation related Good articles and Featured articles.


The scope of this project is to provide guidelines on topics related to taxation and provide a space, where users can collaborate to improve related articles.


If you want to join, simply help out and add your name to the Members. For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.



The assessment department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's taxation articles. The article ratings are used within the project itself to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Taxation}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in a set of categories that serves as the basis for an automatically generated worklist.


The project's Collaboration of the Month seeks to identify particular articles that would benefit from a significant collaborative effort. Every month, a single article is selected as the focus, and the project attempts to improve it, potentially to featured article standards. The current collaboration article is Tax, tariff and trade.

Any taxation articles (except for current featured articles and featured article candidates) are eligible, and everyone is invited to nominate articles.

Peer review[edit]

The peer review department conducts peer reviews of articles on request; this helps to obtain ideas for further improvement by having contributors who may not have previously worked on particular articles examine them. Project members are invited to submit articles to the department in lieu of using the generic peer review process.


The translation department of the Taxation WikiProject aims to utilize high-quality non-English material related to taxation for the goals of the project. This includes both translating articles from and to other-language Wikipedias as well as assisting contributors with non-English sources.

Good article nominees

  • 2 Aug. 2014 - This important page Transfer_pricing has been dormant since 2010. At that time the seminal OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines were revised, restructured and republished as a different document; as a result the main link in the article to the old version of the Guidelines no longer works, starting in the "History" section. I have added a new link to the read-only version for non-OECD-subscribers, but the article needs to be revamped to account for this development. Seniorexpat (talk) 06:54, 31 July 2014 (UTC) (talk)

  1. (Discuss) - Merge Progressive tax, Regressive tax, and Proportional tax into Tax progressivity
  2. (Discuss) - Merge Circular 230 and Individual Taxpayer Identification Number into Internal Revenue Service.
  3. (Discuss) - Merge Category:Taxation by country into Category:National taxation articles
  4. (Discuss) - Merge Internal Revenue Code of 1986, which has a short, inaccurate history of the conversion from the 1954 code to the 1986 code, plus a time-specific table with no time reference, into Internal Revenue Code. Alternatively delete the 1986 article.
  5. (Discuss) - Merge Harmful_Tax_Competition:_An_Emerging_Global_Issue into a more encompassing article on Harmful Tax Competition.

Split suggestions[edit]

  1. (Discuss) - Property tax article, within the US section, create separate topics for the levy process, property valuation (including cycles), limitations imposed by states, residential relief, economic development incentive programs, exemptions, special districts.

Move suggestions[edit]

Merge-arrow.svg The following articles are candidates for a Move. Please review the proposal and add your opinion.

Deletion suggestions[edit]

Crystal Clear mimetype recycled.svg The following articles have been proposed for deletion.

Note to group: we now have the following mostly-redundant articles, nearly all authored by User:Boyd_Reimer (and otherwise as noted):

  • Tobin tax (quadrupled by BR)
  • Financial transaction tax
  • Spahn tax
  • Currency transaction tax
  • Bank tax
  • Robin Hood Tax (a lobbying campaign by Oxfam, article originally authored by an Oxfam intern)

The last was the subject of an AfD controversy settled as "keep" with the proviso that advertising material and material redundant with Tobin tax be removed. (It remains as it was)

What's up with this??

Globalize requests[edit]

Gnome-globe.svg The following articles need to be globalized because they do not reflect the tax law of all relevant jurisdictions.
