A Council of Europe resolution on the distribution of taxes in cross-border areasNovember 2019
On 29 October, the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution entitled “Fair distribution of taxes in transfrontier areas”. In the report presented by Karl-Heinz Lambertz, the Congress calls for greater cooperation between the countries concerned on this issue.
"Transfrontier working and the free movement of labour across borders are a vital aspect of European cooperation and integration. To prevent this causing fiscal disparities between regions on either side of borders and thereby undermining territorial cohesion, it is essential that taxes be distributed fairly between workers’ places of employment and places of residence," Karl-Heinz Lambertz recalled during the session.Back to list
