Just pointing out that comparing national income tax rates to the US is very misleading.

Thanks for that. I was aware there were complexities for the US, and I was half way through the ins and outs of the German taxation system when I did opt for a more simplified model.

The premise in large swathes of the UK media is that the Labour Party’s manifesto is mad, and off on an extreme. This article was really just trying to highlight that it isn’t, not in an international context.

I originally had + 0-13% for US taxes, but no one country in particular was my focus.

As I’ve got you here. The tax rate that really seems an anomaly to me with the US is that corporation tax. Is that a federal corporation tax at 39%? It can’t be applied to all businesses surely!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
