Our assessment of the public administration effectiveness in tax collection

As regards tax collection from them, citizens consider the existing effectiveness of the public administration to be quite high. In the opinion of 47% of economically active persons, the public administration is ‘very effective’ in the collection of their taxes. 23% consider it ’quite effective’, 9% ‘medium effective’ and only 5% of those polled stated that the public administration is ‘quite’ or ‘totally’ ineffective in respect of tax collection from them.

The public administration is considered ‘very effective’ in this respect mostly by people whose tax returns are filled in and submitted by employers, i.e. in particular blue-collar workers. A lower frequency of these answers was recorded among businessmen and tradesmen who evaluated the public administration as being ‘quite’ or ‘medium’ effective.
