That’d be great.
A problem I noticed is that in nationmaster the single-worker tax wedge rates seem a bit weird. I live in Canada and I am pretty sure that we pay much more income tax (including social security tax) than the Americans. Their tax wedge (shown on that site) is 29.7% and ours is 30%. The UK has a supposedly lower rate than the US which I find shocking. Or maybe that’s just a myth, I don’t know. It sure feels like we pay a lot of tax here but in Europe tax is even more punishing in some places.
Here is the official Canadian tax rate excluding pension and employment insurance(I combined both the federal and Ontario provincial income tax in this chart). Note that Ontario has below-average taxes for the country though so perhaps this isn’t the best example. But I guess income tax varies by the state too in the US. As you can see the rates are progressive (Alberta interestingly enough has a provincial flat rate tax but the federal portion of the tax is always progressive)
Tax %, Range ($CDN)
*Note: Canadians don’t pay tax if they make less than $8,700 CDN or something like that.
I’d be surprised if tax in the US was only slightly less harsh than this considering how they have a reputation of being a strong free-market capitalist nation. Either way I’m sure that some Europeans would look at these rates and think we have it made.
