This baseline assessment was carried out to support the work of CFAC and efforts by civil society organizations, government authorities, and international donors in anti-corruption by providing in-depth insights into the tax assessment, payment, and collection processes at the Revenue Department of the Ministry of Finance, particularly in the Small, Medium-sized, and Large Taxpayer Offices (STO/MTO/LTO) and make practical recommendations on how to curb corruption in these processes.
In late 2016, APPRO conducted research in Kabul, Mazar-e Sharif, Herat, Kandahar, and Jalalabad on the interactions between taxpayers (NGOs and private sector) and tax collectors (mainly MTO but to a lesser extent also LTO and STO). This research was designed to establish the extent of predatory corruption in tax assessment, payment, and collection to identify the actors, factors, and mechanisms that facilitate corruption and to identity pathways to curb corruption as a necessary condition for good governance.
This paper examines the extent to which traditional and religious values against corruption are being introduced to bring anti-corruption awareness into Afghanistan’s education system with a focus on the national primary, secondary and higher education curricula. The paper also enquires whether anti-corruption features in the teachings of the religious institutions. The findings from this research suggest that using Islamic values against corruption in education is an obvious starting point in Afghanistan. However, the teaching methods used by teachers at all levels of education need to be much more innovative, inspiring and engaging than currently in evidence.

The reporting period for this second monitoring cycle covers May to August 2016. Data were collected in 29 rural and urban districts in the Central, Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western geographical zones of Afghanistan.
