Tomorrow marks the infamous Tax Day in the United States. (The date is usually April 15th but was altered to the 17th for 2012 as the 15th fell on a weekend.) While Americans often complain about tax day, it is rather interesting to note that we as a country do not pay as much as we could be.
The following link has a chart showing how the United States compares, tax percentage wise, to other countries.
During a discussion on a safari drive with Nicholas in the “young” participants vehicle, it was mentioned that in Tanzania the individual tax rate varies from 15 to 30%. However, he also mentioned that men pay taxes, whereas women typically do not pay an individual yearly tax to the government. This meant that us ladies thought it to be a very keen idea to move there, while the boys balked at the idea of having to pay taxes for their wives.
