The Increase in Income Taxes Across the World

GlobeWithin the last five years, many countries including the United States have increased income taxes by an average of eight percent.

However, the eight percent increase is not optimal for producing maximum revenue for OECD countries. IMF estimates that the increase would have to be raised to sixty percent, which is much higher than current rates.
