Subject: Interesting taxonomy - Tax administrations

Major companies are starting to recognize the need to better track their tax charges of all kinds. Being able to "slice and dice" and otherwise analyze tax responsibilities and expenditures by area and type of tax is important, and may be facilitated by standardized lists of tax administrations and tax types. This type of "taxonomy" can have benefits to tax administrations and other organizations as well.

At the recent OASIS Tax XML meeting, we discussed some of the upcoming efforts we might dedicate ourselves to. To the list we developed, I will add the possibility of developing a tax AGENCY AND TYPE taxonomy - whether in the XBRL sense (possibly as a Dimensional Taxonomy) or in the generic sense of the agencies and tax types, related attributes and interrelationships.

Through the use of such a standardized listing, a company can find out more easily across divisions the total taxes paid to a particular agency, or the taxes in a region, or the taxes of a particular kind, and get a truer picture throughout their organization, of their tax burden.

While Tax XML does not want to be in the standards business itself, it could be a big help in another group, such as one within XBRL, developing such a taxonomy.

Your thoughts appreciated.

Some of the attributes such a taxonomy might include:

Agency identification:
Agency "identifier": a unique code or index/key for each agency
Agency name (multiple languages with lang="")
Agency "parent" (for sub-agencies)
