France overtook Denmark as the most taxed country in 2017 as government tax revenues in developed countries hit a record high, the OECD said, data which may do little to help President Emmanuel Macron placate protesters angered over living costs.

Korea is also characteristic in terms of relatively lower tax burden related to income and social security taxes and higher burden on real estate taxation.
Denmark and Belgium followed France as the most taxed countries, while the USA came in at number six. In the meantime, GDP fell by 25% when tax revenue from USD 95.9 billion in 2010 was USD 71.6 billion in 2015 and skyrocketed to USD 78.9 billion in 2017. Other countries at the top were France (4.4 percent), the United Kingdom and the U.S.
