2019 Tax Perception Survey Report

This Tax Perception Survey was undertaken by the Consortium of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), led by Christian Aid under the DFID supported Public Financial Management (PFM) Project title “Strengthening Public Financial Management, Anti-Corruption and Accountability Institutions in Sierra Leone” to understand taxpayer perceptions on the taxes they pay, their knowledge of the tax system, and confidence level in those handling such taxes. It is also important to understand tax payers wider views of government and how this relates to their attitudes and motivation towards paying taxes.

The ENCISS story: 2010-2014

ENCISS aims to improve accountability and strengthen citizens’ voice, participation in decision-making and access to information. Between October 2010 and September 2013 we awarded 243 grants, worth £3.8m, to a host of organisations. These micro, strategic and project grants went to groups of all shapes and sizes, including civil society organisations  (CSOs) and local councils, to fund initiatives across the ENCISS thematic areas: gender, youth, justice, decentralisation and the 2012 elections. Here we capture stories from phase 3 of the ENCISS programme from across these core theme areas.

The ENCISS story 2010-14 highlights
