Development of tax revenues in the new Länder - an east-west comparison -

In 2003 tax revenue in the new Länder were about 30% of the level in the old Länder. The survey analyses the current situation, the structures and the development since unification. The paper concludes that caused by the current tax system a further convergence of tax receipts could not have been expected – and should not be expected within the next years.
