The Libro Blanco is the result of the diagnostic work carried out by the Committee of experts commissioned by the Secretary of State for Finance by Resolution of April the 21st 2021. The aim of this study is to serve as a basis for a reform of the tax system that guarantees the sustainability of public finances, so that it can respond to the financing of public expenditure, contributing to the reduction of the structural deficit and the maintenance of the Welfare State.
