The Wealth Tax Commission is a project investigating the desirability and feasibility of a wealth tax in the UK. The project is being run by Arun Advani (University of Warwick), Emma Chamberlain (Pump Court Tax Chambers) and Andrew Summers (London School of Economics).

To develop a comprehensive evidence-base for this project they commissioned a series of papers written by a network of world-leading experts on tax policy. These include thirteen ‘core’ evidence papers covering key issues of principle and design, and over twenty additional ‘background’ evidence papers, making this the largest repository of evidence on wealth taxes globally to date.

They have also released their initial report, Is it time for a UK wealth tax?. The final report will be published on 9th December 2020.
