Taxing Wages: comparative tax burden indicators

 

These tables, which are also reported in the OECD Taxing Wages publication, provide unique information for each of the OECD countries on the income taxes paid by workers, their social security contributions, the family benefits they receive in the form of cash transfers as well as the social security contributions and payroll taxes paid by their employers.

The amounts of taxes and social security contributions paid and cash benefits received are set out, programme by programme, for 8 different household types characterised by marital staus, number of children, earnings levels expressed as proportion of average wages and whether there are one or two earners.

The results reported include the average and marginal tax burden for each household type . These data on tax burdens and cash benefits are widely used in academic research and the preparation and evaluation of social economic policy-making.
