Countries that pay the highest income tax

Every tax season, it’s common to hear some moaning and groaning about how much income tax we pay; sure it goes towards all kinds of public services, but sometimes, it would be nice to just have a few more dollars on that paycheque.

Taxing Wages 2017 looks at how much citizens in the 35 OECD countries pay in tax each year.
