    What is the "taux de pression fiscale"?

    "Le pays a maintenu un taux de pression fiscale autour de 10%."

    Thank you!

    Le taux de pression est fiscale est le taux de prélèvement fiscal, le pourcentage de revenus qui est taxé par l'état que ce soit par les taxes directes ou indirectes.

    I have found a formula to compute the "taux de pression fiscale" :

    (taxes/PIB) x 100

    PIB = Produit Interieur Bruit = Gross Domestic Product = GDP

    I think that in english, they talk about a tax revenue as percentage of GDP

    Yes, the best we have come up with is "ratio of taxes to GDP" or "percentage of taxes to GDP".

    Thanks!
