27 Countries with the highest tax rates

France tops Europe (followed by Italy) and Argentina the World. To measure tax they use the World Bank's "total tax rate" as follows: "The total amount of taxes is the sum of five different types of taxes and contributions payable after accounting for deductions and exemptions: profit or corporate income tax, social contributions and labor taxes paid by the employer, property taxes, turnover taxes, and other small taxes."
