Description: The statistics on taxes and tax-like payments contain data on the taxes and compulsory social security contributions central and local governments and social security funds collect annually. In addition, the statistics include data on the tax-like payments collected in Finland for the European Union. The key parameter figure in the statistics on taxes and tax-like payments is the total tax ratio depicting the annual accrual of all compulsory tax-like payments relative to the gross domestic product of the same time period. Total tax ratio is one of the commonest measures used in international comparisons of public sector sizes.
