Abstract

The present paper aims to investigate the impact of tax policy on economic growth in Tunisia over the period 1995 - 2020, by using cointegration analysis and Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL). To explain tax policy, we use tax revenue and degree of fiscal freedom. Empirical results mark that in the long run tax revenue and degree of fiscal freedom has a positive impact on economic growth, while the impact of tax revenues is positive. Our findings provide evidence that tax policy is seen as a source of growth in Tunisia. From these results, we extract several basic policy conclusions.
