Swedish Taxes. A new study, by professor Sven-Olof Lodin, of Swedish taxes in comparison with other countries reveals interesting information:

- Swedish taxes on labour, in relation to GDP, are 50 per cent above the average in the EU.

- Sweden still has the highest consumption tax in the EU, at 25 per cent.

- The highest income tax rate, 52 per cent, is paid by most middle income earners (not counting the 32 per cent in payroll tax) which makes this the highest in the EU.

- A few years ago, the Swedish corporate tax rate, 28 per cent, was at the EU average, but now the EU average is below 25 per cent.

The Swedish government is doing several things right concerning taxes, but most of our neighbours are working in the same direction. To improve our relative position, it has to be more ambitious.
