Peter Tattersall – Tax tree
Peter Tattersall was the winner o the idea-category in the 2009 Apps or DemocracyFinland contest. Peter’s idea is rather simple. Even or the proessionals, the Budget o Finland is heavy reading. The budgetary materials have been available or some time, andthe media has been trying to make it more visible.The tax tree is an idea o an Internet service, one that would make the revenues andexpenditures o an organisation ran by state, municipality or public administration evenmore visible. Revenues are the roots o the tree. They then become a part o the stem andfnally they branch out as expenditures. The attained profts are represented as leas andruit. The thickness o the roots and branches are equivalent to the amount o sources o income and the items o expenditure.In order to work, the tax tree and other similar applications need open data in amachine-readable ormat. The Netra service (www.netra.f) is run by the State Treasury o Finland, and it provides inormation on the operation, resources and proftability o thestate. However, Netra is designed to specifcally serve the needs o the Finnish Govern-ment. It is the aim o this handbook to answer one simple question: what would we needto do to put the tax tree into practice in Finland?
