Relevance of research topic. Tax policy provides the largest share of revenue in the consolidated budget. In modern conditions, tax policy requires continuous improvement and adaptation to changes in the model of socio-economic development. It is necessary to develop approaches to the use of tax instruments taking into account globalization trends, structural features and the state of the domestic economy. Formulation of the problem. Despite the structural transformation of the fiscal policy in recent years, the issue of seeking a balance of interests between taxpayers and government institutions remains relevant. Harmonious coordination of relevant interests in the field of taxation will maximize the amount of tax revenues to the budget. Analysis of recent research and publications. The issue of tax policy was considered by foreign ones - A. J. Auerbach, R. M. Bird, E. M. Zolt, E. Zwick, S. Knack, J. Freedman, I. Zwick - and domestic scientists - L. Lysyak, A. Mazaraki, V. Makogon, A. Nikitishin, M. Pasichnyi, A. Sokolovska, I. Chugunov and others. Selection of unexplored parts of the general problem.

Tax policy as a component of the budget revenue generation system is influenced by economic transformations and adapts to macroeconomic conditions. Tax revenues are the financial basis for the exercise of authority by participants in the budget process and the implementation of the functions and tasks assigned to them. The level of redistribution of the GDP through the budget revenues depends on the volume and priority of the tasks and functions of public institutions, the development model and social policy. Approaches to the formation of budget revenues through tax revenues should provide opportunities for improving the tax administration, the development of the state and territorial community, strengthening financial stability and creating favorable conditions for sustainable growth.
