Media Advisory – OECD to release 2023 edition of Taxing Wages on Tuesday 25 April
04/21/2023 – 2023 payroll taxes, the OECD’s flagship annual publication on the various taxes levied on wages in OECD countries, will be released on Tuesday 25 April at 11:00 am Paris time (09:00 GMT).
The report Taxes on wages 2023 contains international comparative data on income tax paid by employees, cash transfers received by employed households, and social security contributions and payroll taxes paid by employees and employers in OECD countries. All of this information is critical factors considered by both individuals reviewing their job opportunities and companies making hiring decisions.
The report shows how these taxes are calculated and examines their impact on household income. The results also allow international comparisons to be made of labor costs and of the overall situation, vis-à-vis the tax and transfer system, of eight categories of households, defined according to their level of income and their composition (single people, single parents, households with one or two earners, with or without children).
This year’s report includes a special study on the indexation of labor taxes and benefits, a topic of particular relevance given the high rates of inflation recently recorded in most OECD countries.
Journalists will be able to have advance access to the electronic version of the report, by e-mail and under embargo, the day before its publication. The report will be communicated by e-mail and on request only. Journalists requesting the embargoed report undertake to respect the embargo rules set by the OECD. The corresponding requests should be addressed to em*****@oe**.org.
