ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the 2008 Tax Misery & Reform Index, which highlights the stable taxes in Asia while noting the flat tax revolutions in central Europe, the Balkans and Russia. The index showed that Vietnam reformed its tax system with an eight-point improvement from cutting both personal and corporate top rates. France and Europe showed impressive tax reduction but more work is needed. The index also illustrated that Asia's biggest nations continue to be standoffs in reducing entrpreneurial tax load.
