Sources of Government Revenue in the OECD, 2018

Amir El-Sibaie:

In 2015, OECD countries relied heavily on consumption taxes, such as the value-added tax, and social insurance taxes, such as the payroll tax.

The United States relied heavily on the individual income tax, at 40.5 percent of total government tax revenue.

On average, OECD countries collected little from the corporate income tax (8.9 percent of total tax revenue).
