Austrian taxes and charges extremely high

It was never a secret that Austrians have to pay a lot of taxes and charges. But an EU-wide comparison showed the unbelievable size of Austrias tax and charge burden. And Austrias politicans promise to increase taxes and find new types of charges.

27 countries of the European Union were included in the comparison. Austria made it on the 23th rank with a tax and contribution ratio of 42,40 percent. The fewest charges were found with 27 percent in Latvia.

Denmark is one of the few countries which has even more higher taxes and charges. Their tax and contribution ratio is 46,9 percent. Also Sweden, Belgium, and Italy have higher taxes and charges as Austria. The average tax and contribution ratio of the European Union is 38,4 percent.
