The Tax Foundation released its 2014 International Tax Competitiveness Index (ITCI) of 34 OECD countries and Canada’s overall rank was 24 out of 34 countries. Despite our recent snagging of Burger King, we are apparently in the bottom third of OECD countries when it comes to tax competitiveness. Interestingly enough, the United States did even worse than us coming in 32nd place – ahead of Portugal and France. However, despite our low overall ranking, we were in the top third when it came to consumption taxes where we ranked 10th out of 34 (in this category the United States ranked 4th). This was our best performance.
