In addition, this annual publication specificies 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.

These data on tax burdens and cash benefits are widely used in academic research and in the preparation and evaluation of social and economic policy making.

    Foreword
    This annual publication provides details of taxes paid on wages in all thirty-four 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.

    Overview
    This Report provides unique information for each of the 34 OECD member countries – including the new OECD member countries Chile, Estonia, Israel and Slovenia – 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. Results reported include the marginal and average tax burden for one- and two-earner families, and the implied total labour costs for employers. These data are widely used in academic research and in the formulation and evaluation of social and economic policies. The taxpayer specific detail in this Report enables it to complement the information provided annually in the Revenue Statistics, a publication providing internationally comparative data on tax levels and tax structures in the thirtyfour member countries. The methodology followed in this Report is set out briefly in Section 1 and described in more detail in Part IV of this Report.

    Special Feature: Wage Income Tax Reforms and Changes in Tax Burdens: 2000-2009
    The tax burden on labour and its evolution over time are issues that feature prominently in the political debate. Averaged across the OECD, personal income taxes, social security contributions and payroll taxes together account for more than 51% of total government revenues in 2008 (OECD, 2010). With tax burdens differentiated by earnings level and family situation, they serve a central role as redistribution policies. Importantly, by shaping both work incentives and the cost of labour, the level and structure of these taxes are major influences on the functioning of labour markets.

      Tax Burdens, 2010 Estimates
      This Section continues by commenting on Tables I.1-I.11 and Figures I.1-I.6, which can be found at the end of this Section. All these summary tables show results for eight familytypes, characterised by different family status (single/married, 0-2 children), economic status (one-/two-earner household) and wage level (33 per cent, 67 per cent, 100 per cent and 167 per cent of annual gross wage earnings of an average worker).

      Tax Burdens, 2009 Definitive Results
      This section briefly reviews the definitive results for 2009 reported in Tables I.12-I.22 which can be found at the end of this Section and what they show about changes between 2009 and 2010. The format of Tables I.12-I.22 is identical to that of Tables I.1-I.11 reviewed above. Thus, changes between 2009 and 2010 for the various cases considered can be traced by comparing the same columns in Tables I.12-I.22, to those in Tables I.1-I.11. The following commentary on Tables I.12-I.22 focuses on changes in tax burdens and marginal tax rates for single employees without children at the average wage level (column 2 of the tables) and for one-earner married families with two children at the average wage level (column 5 of the tables). Comparing the columns 1, 3-4 and 6-8 of the tables would give the results for the remaining six family-types distinguished in this Report. Generally, only changes exceeding 1 percentage point for average effective rates and 5 percentage points for marginal effective rates are flagged.

      Methodology
      The personal circumstances of taxpayers vary greatly. To identify representative taxpayers and to calculate the amount of their taxes, this Report uses a specific methodology. The focus is on employees. It is assumed that their annual income from employment is equal to a given fraction of the average gross wage earnings of adult, fulltime workers in a broad range of industry sectors of each OECD economy. Additional assumptions are made regarding other relevant personal circumstances of these wage earners to enable their tax/benefit position to be determined. Table IV.1 sets out the terminology used in this Report, while Table IV.2 provides information on the industry sectors covered.

      Limitations
      The simple approach of comparing the tax/benefit position of example families avoids many of the conceptual and definitional problems involved in more complex international comparisons of tax burdens and transfer programmes. However, a drawback of this methodology is that the earnings of an average worker will usually occupy a different position in the overall income distribution in different economies, although the earnings relate to workers in similar jobs in various OECD member countries.

      A Note on the Tax Equations
      Each country chapter contains a section that describes the of equations in a standard format which show the calculations required to derive the amounts of income tax, social security contributions and cash transfers. These algorithms represent in algebraic form the legal provisions described in the chapter and are consistent with the figures shown in the country and comparative tables. This section describes the conventions used in the definition of the equations and how they could be used by those wishing to implement the equations for their own research.
