Tax burden on employees

Question

Why does Belgium have the highest tax burden on employees in the world? A MEAN rate of 57%!?

From the archives

Where do you get your figures from?
The last time I filled in a tax return the HIGHEST rate was 50% and that on the portion of taxable salary over around €2,600/month. More than 50% of Belgian employees do not earn enough to reach this level on any part of their salary.
The tax burden is high here but your question is based on fantasy.
