New portal launched to teach young Europeans about tax issues
TAXEDU - New portal launched to teach youngsters about tax issues
The European Commission has launched a new education portal for young people to teach them in a fun and interactive way about tax issues.
TaxEdu is a digital resource to educate children about the purpose of taxes and how they affect their daily life.
It also gives information on tax compliance and the negative effects of tax fraud on society.
The portal is full of multilingual e-learning tools for different age groups, games, videos and educational material for teachers to use in schools.
A joint initiative of the European Commission and the European Parliament, the project has been brought to life thanks to cooperation with EU countries' national tax authorities.
