OECD Taxing Wages.

Taxing Wages provides unique information on income tax paid by workers and social security contributions levied on 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 program by program, 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.

Key statistical concept
This table reports statutory central government personal income tax rates for wage income plus the taxable income thresholds at which these statutory rates apply.
  • The table also reports basic/standard tax allowances, tax credits and surtax rates.
  • The information is applicable to a single person without dependents.
  • The threshold, tax allowance and tax credit amounts are expressed in national currencies
  • Tapered means that the tax relief basic amount is reduced with increasing income
  • Further explanatory notes may be found in the Explanatory Annex

This data represents part of the data presented within the Excel file “Personal income tax rates and thresholds for central governments - Table I.1”. The Data for 1981 to 1999 is not included here within as not all the data for these years is either available, or can be verified.

The OECD tax database provides comparative information on a range of tax statistics - tax revenues, personal income taxes, non-tax compulsory payments, corporate and capital income taxes and taxes on consumption - that are levied in the 34 OECD member countries.”
