    The tax rates shown are the latest available, including reforms to be implemented in 2009 or the beginning of 2010.

    The "Misery score" is the sum of the taxes shown in the tax categories of Corporate Income, Personal Income, Wealth Tax, Employer Social Security, Personal Social Security, and Value Added/Sales taxes.

    The highest marginal percentage in each locale is considered. "It's our best proxy for evaluating whether policy attracts or repels capital and talent".

    The countries at the top of the chart impose the harshest taxes while those at the bottom are the most tax friendly.

    NOTES:

    1. Includes an additional 12.1% flat tax on income before potential 50% ceiling.

    2. Malta corporate tax is credited when profits are given as dividends to shareholders.
