The U.S. ranks 28th in income tax

According to worldwide-tax.com, the top federal individual income tax rate in the United States is 35%, which makes the United States tied for twenty-eighth with several other countries out of sixty-two ranked countries. Denmark ranks first, with a top income tax rate of 59%.

    The problem with this comparison is that it doesn’t consider State tax in this equation, and it’s now outdated with the recent increase with the formation of a new tax bracket at 39.5%. Most countries don’t have States, or other taxes so this comparison is false. That combined with New York’s highest State tax level becomes 54.5% and we haven’t adding in capital gains, sales, property, built-ins (gas) or any other tax.

    I know that my rankings eventually become outdated, but there’s not much I can do about that given the limited amount of time I have for this project…
