On 1 December 2011, Prof. Dr Victor van Kommer, Director Tax Services at the International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation (IBFD), was appointed as professor at the faculty of law, governance and economics of the University of Utrecht. Prof. Dr Van Kommer will focus on issues in the field of Tax Policy. During the inauguration ceremony held at the University of Utrecht, he gave an oration entitled "Personal income tax: a society's credit".

Personal income tax: A society’s credit
Prof. Dr Van Kommer started his oration by describing the pressure that the euro zone crisis has put on many governments. As more and more countries have been placed under IMF surveillance, he asserted that should the European Union fail to impose the necessary budget discipline, measures from the IMF will follow. He emphasized that these financial problems may well make European governments relinquish a number of democratic achievements. Moreover, the authorities, including those in the Netherlands, will have to reduce their responsibilities. Taxes are no exception, and also due to the substantially increasing IT expenditure thereof, tax authorities are calling for simplification.

Prof. Dr Van Kommer asked therefore whether and how society would benefit from this?
Income tax as we know it started as a manifestation of the late-nineteenth-century movement of emancipation and participation. Society was oriented towards education and social mobility, and personal income tax supported this process. Hands-off governments do away with these taxes.

Prof. Dr Van Kommer has made a plea to adopt the necessary simplification measures in tax law but to maintain a number of the particular foundations of personal income tax, or even bring some of them back to life. To this end, Van Kommer has summarized some proposals that are intended to give personal income tax a more central role in the interaction between politics and the citizen.
