Department of Planning


In May 1968, the Executive Yuan established “The Tax Reform Committee, Executive Yuan” to review the tax structure at that time and reform tax administration. At the conclusion of the Committee after two years’ study, the Executive Yuan approved the establishment of “The Taxation and Tariff Committee, Ministry of Finance” on July 1, 1970 to continue the work of the former “Tax Reform Committee, Executive Yuan,” and made it a permanent tax research agency in charge of long-term research on subjects related to our taxation system. Under the Taxation and Tariff Committee, there were four sections, which were in charge of research and planning of direct taxes and indirect taxes, international fiscal cooperation, review and compilation of tax laws and regulations, and editing and management of fiscal publications.

At the beginning of the Ministry of Finance, the Secretariat was set up to provide comprehensive secretary and staff services. Starting from 1987, four sections were allowed to set under the Secretariat, of which the Chief Secretary of the Ministry of Finance also served as the Chief of Staff. In addition to being responsible for the review and verification of official documents, compilation of the administrative policy and administration plans, evaluation of policy performance, assessment of public services, and tracking and control of various important plans, the Secretariat was responsible for arranging and scheduling internal ministry meetings and affairs relating to the Premier’s visits and Control Yuan members’ inspections. The secretariat also compiled external work reports of the (Deputy) Minister, drafted manuscripts and letters, and handled press liaison-related affairs.

On January 1, 2013, the Ministry of Finance merged the Taxation and Tariff Committee (in charge of fiscal research and publication) with the Secretariat (in charge of administration planning, supervision, and evaluation-related services) into the Department of Planning.

The Department of Planning is divided into four sections: the Strategic Planning Section, Policy Research Section, Supervision and Evaluation Section, and Coordination Services Section.
