In the OECD classification, "taxes" are confined to compulsory, unrequited payments to general government. They are divided into five broad categories: taxes on income (1000), profits and capital gains (2000); social security contributions (3000); taxes on payroll and workforce; property taxes (4000); and taxes on goods and services (5000) (OECD, Revenue Statistics 1965-2008).
