Welcome to the assessment department of the Taxation WikiProject! This 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. Articles are rated on a scale of quality and priority in relation to the goals of the Taxation WikiProject.

Frequently asked questions[edit]

How can I get my article rated? 
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
Who can assess articles? 
Any member of the Taxation WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article up to B-Class. GA and FA should follow their defined assessment process. A-Class should receive 3 approval votes from Taxation WikiProject members.
What if I don't agree with a rating? 
You can list it in the section for assessment requests below, and someone will take a look at it. Alternately, you can ask any member of the project to rate the article again.
Aren't the ratings subjective? 
Yes, they are, but it's the best system we've been able to devise; if you have a better idea, please don't hesitate to let us know!

If you have any other questions not listed here, please feel free to ask them on the discussion page for this department.


An article's assessment is generated from the class and priority parameters in the {{WikiProject Taxation}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Taxation

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed taxation articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

The following values may be used for the importance parameter:

The parameter is not used if an article's class is set to NA, and may be omitted in those cases. The importance should be assigned according to the priority scale below. Note that the priority is used on the workgroup lists only.

The following optional values may be used (see Peer review):

  • peer-review=yes
  • old-peer-review=yes

Quality scale[edit]

Priority scale[edit]

Priority must be regarded as a relative term. If priority values are applied within this project, these only reflect the perceived importance to this project. An article judged to be "Top-Class" in one context may be only "Mid-Class" in another project. The criteria used for rating article priority are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it).

Article priority grading scheme
Label Criteria Examples
Top Very high probability that non-accountants would look this up. Limited to the most central tax concepts and the primary tax article for English speaking countries. Income taxTaxation in the United Kingdom
High High probability that non-accountants would look this up. Important international tax concepts or a significant concept for a single country. Retirement planIncome taxes in the United States
Mid Medium probability that non-accountants would look this up. Important tax concepts in an individual country, significant tax legislation, or notable international concepts. 401(k) planTax incidence
Low Low probability that non-accountants would look this up. Subject is notable within an individual country, minor tax legislation, court cases, tax forms, biographies. Rabbi trustMurphy v. IRS

Requesting an assessment[edit]

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new quality rating for it, please feel free to list it below. NOTE: This is only to rate the article on quality - you may or may not get feedback on the article. If you desire a review, use the peer review process. If you assess an article, please strike it off using <s>Strike-through text</s> so that other editors will not waste time going there too. Thanks!

Seeking an A-class rating? We suggest you submit it for a Peer Review to allow us more time to respond and review. Be sure to first read what qualifies as an A rating before doing so though.
