EU Sources - OECD reports on taxing wages - April 30, 2018

The OECD has published a brochure on wage and income taxation. The brochure is based on the annual report with details of taxes paid on wages in OECD countries. A summary is available in 8 languages. The brochure provides information 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 average tax wedge decreased by 1.1 percentage points from 37.0% to 35.9% for the single taxpayer on average earnings and by 1.8 percentage points from 27.9% to 26.1% for the one earner married couple on average earnings with two children.
