OECD Tax Statistics

Hide / Show Abstract

OECD Tax Statistics are published in two volumes: The Revenue Statistics database provides detailed information on tax and other government revenues broken down by type of tax or revenue and level of government. Data are provided for the period 1975 onwards for all OECD countries. Country data are normally provided in national currencies. Comparable data tables show taxation and social security contributions as a percentage of GDP. The Taxing Wages database provides information on taxes paid and benefits received by workers under 8 different income and family composition situations. Data mainly refer to recent years, but some comparative tables also present statistics of interest over the period 1979 to 2003. Data are provided for all OECD countries in national currency values.

Personal Income Tax: Average rates and social security contributions (Edition 2017) You do not have access to this content


Hide / Show Abstract

This dataset reports average personal income tax and social security contribution rates for a single person without dependent, at various multiples (67%, 100%, 133%, 167%) of the AW/APW. The average wage (AW) is based on a single person at 100% of average earnings, no child. The results use tax rates applicable to the tax year. The results take into account basic/standard income tax allowances and tax credits and include family cash transfers. The marginal rates are expressed as a percentage of gross wage earnings, with the exception of the Total tax wedge which is expressed as a percentage of gross labour costs (gross wages + employer SSC).
