Data on government sector receipts, and on taxes in particular, are basic inputs to most structural economic descriptions and economic analyses and are increasingly used in economic comparisons. This annual publication gives a conceptual framework to define which government receipts should be regarded as taxes.  It presents a unique set of detailed an internationally comparable tax data in a common format for all OECD countries from 1965 onwards.

Executive summary

The OECD average tax-to-GDP ratio increased again in 2016 to a new high of 34.3%, continuing the steady increases in tax levels since 2009, their low-point following the financial crisis. Since then, personal taxes continue to play an increasingly important role in OECD tax revenues, while revenues from social security contributions and value-added taxes are slowly decreasing from post-crisis peaks, and corporate income tax revenues have still not recovered.
