In Germany it is around 45%, in the USA it is around 39%. And across the EU Austria leads with 55% and then Belgium with 52.5% and the lowest is Hungary and the Czech Republic with percents of 15%, but their leaders are somewhat questionable, at least in Hungary. The EU has good Infrastructure but high tax rates the US is good with taxes but is middle in Infrastructure. Japan and the Netherlands have some of thew world’s best Infrastructure but have a tax rate of 51.8% for the Netherlands and Japan with 40%. Higher taxes when used good are good for everyone such as Modern Train systems, HSR, non crumbling highways, good schools that are somewhat affordable, Public option for Health Care and great Bike lanes and great Public Transit in cities and some pension insurance when you are old( this can help with a 41K plan or IRA plan).
