This data is updated after the finalisation of the Taxing Wages publication for the corresponding year. This table reports marginal personal income tax and social security contribution rates for a single person without dependent, at various multiples (67%, 100%, 133%, 167%) of the AW/APW. The average wage (AW) by country and year can be found within the Taxing Wages comparative tables dataset, under the indicator heading: Total gross earnings before taxes (national currency). The AW is based on a single person at 100% of average earnings, no child. The results, derived from the OECD Taxing Wages framework (elaborated in the annual publication Taxing Wages), use tax rates applicable to the tax year. The results take into account basic/standard income tax allowances and tax credits and include family cash transfers (see Taxing Wages). The marginal rates are expressed as a percentage of gross wage earnings, with the exception of the Total tax wedge which is expressed as a percentage of gross labour costs (gross wages + employer SSC). The sub-central personal tax rates used in this table correspond to those used in Taxing Wages. The figures may differ from those published in Taxing Wages where updated information is available, such as revised AW/APW data. Further explanatory notes may be found in the Explanatory Annex.
