Promoting interoperability of XML tax-related information

Table of Contents


The second edition of the OASIS Tax XML Technical Committee's XML Position Paper for Tax Administrations has been published. It confirms the overall directions of the first edition and expresses the learning and experience that have been gained in the past 12 months by the organisations involved on The Committee. This Position Paper outlines the standards that The Committee has determined will have the greatest and longest impact on improving the exchange of tax information.


Tax XML is an initiative to research and analyze personal and business tax reporting & compliance information, represented in XML, to facilitate interoperability in a way that is open, flexible and international in scope. The products of the OASIS Tax XML TC will include a vocabulary of terms, a repository of artifacts including XML templates, documents exchanged for tax compliance, best practices, guidelines and recommendations for practical implementation. It will focus on developing a common vocabulary that will allow participants to unambiguously identify the tax related information exchanged within a particular business context.
