After financial crisis, budget deficit sustainability became important issues in public policy. Government budget in Korea was surplus by 0.4% of GDP in 2007. However, it became to deficit by 4.1% of GDP. The national debt increased from 30.1% of GDP to 34% during the crisis. In addition, there are many other factors that are supposed to increase budget deficit: population aging; the strained relation between North and South Korea; and slow down of economic growth, etc. Considering these changes and factors, one can think that there may be a situation in the near future in which the government should increase tax revenue through changes in tax rules.
In this report, we investigate trends of tax revenue of national tax items: individual income tax, corporate tax, VAT, liquor tax, cigarette tax, energy and environmental tax, and the customs tariff. We also analyze factors that affect revenue of these taxes and discuss future direction to increase tax revenue. (The rest omitted)
