Portugal stood in the bottom three places among OECD’s 35 countries. The Republic’s tax policies are not competitive enough.

Among the 35 OECD countries assessed, Portugal only stands above Italy and France in terms of the quality of their tax policies. VAT is the tax that mostly pulls Portugal to the bottom three of the Tax Foundation ranking (Spanish content). Estonia has held the first place for three years now.
