The taxation system during the Tang Dynasty in China has always been an important part of academic research of Chinese ancient history. The Rebellion of An and Shi (755–763) divided the development of Tang Dynasty into two stages, and the later reform of the tax system had profound impacts on politics, economy and culture of the middle and late Tang Dynasty. With the archaeological discoveries and the deepening of research topics, the research method and results of the tax system have become more sophisticated. This article intends to review the research results of academic papers on the reform of two-tax system and the commercial tax system in middle and late Tang Dynasty in the past ten years (2011–2021). These research results show that although the two-tax system assisted the central government to expand its fiscal revenue and social stability, it became one of the important reasons for the demise of the Tang Dynasty. The commercial tax reform directly promoted the development of commodity economy and met the corresponding social needs. However, the commercial tax system also accelerated the demise of the Tang Dynasty because it damaged the interests of businessmen and farmers. This paper will provide important references for the study of the history of the Tang Dynasty.
