Taxing Wages 2009

Taxing Wages provides unique information on income tax paid by workers and on social security contributions levied upon employees and their employers in OECD countries. In addition, this annual publication specifies family benefits paid as cash transfers. Amounts of taxes and benefits are detailed programme by programme, for eight household types which differ by income level and household composition. Results reported include the marginal and effective tax burden for one- and two-earner families, and total labour costs of employers. Taxing Wages 2009 includes a special feature entitled "Non-tax compulsory payments as an additional burden on labour income".

Hide / Show Abstract

This annual publication provides details of taxes paid on wages in all thirty member countries of the OECD.* The information contained in the Report covers the personal income tax and social security contributions paid by employees and their employers and cash benefits received by families. The objective of the Report is to illustrate how personal income taxes and social security contributions are calculated and to examine how these levies and cash family benefits impact on net household incomes. The results also allow quantitative cross-country comparisons of labour cost levels and of the overall tax and benefit position of single persons and families.
