    Austrian Taxes and Charges Extremely High

    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.

    I dont mind the taxes as long as they are invested properly, for the good of the people and group, but its a problem if too much of the taxes being spent for the banks, interest rates for depths, foreign elements, corruption and manipulation of the people etc.

    Thats a systemic issue far more important than the taxes alone - namely for what we are paying.

    In Austria a lot of good things being financed by the state, so its something different still, yet the crisis and various other trends result in more and more tax payer money being spent for the wrong things, of which the society, state and people dont really profit, but mainly the small plutocratic minority, most of the time sitting outside of the country or the corrupted helpers among us.
