Are Tanzania's tax exemptions too generous?

Tanzania grants high levels of tax exemptions relative to what it collects in revenue. This raises concerns about whether the practice is justified for a country that can barely raise enough to finance its budget. Analysis in this brief shows that tax exemptions have increased sharply during the second part of this decade and suggests that Tanzania could make significant savings in revenues if it granted tax exemptions less liberally.
