Tax revenue in the European Union. Statistics in focus. Economy and finance 43/2009. EU-27 tax revenue (including social contributions) of general government stabilised in 2007 at 40.9% of GDP, accounting for over 90% of total government revenue. In the euro area (EA-16), on the other hand, tax revenue increased slightly, reaching 41.6% of GDP in 2007. Denmark and Sweden registered the highest levels of tax revenue, amounting to around half of their GDP in 2007, while generally lower levels were observed in the new EU Member States (those that have joined the EU since 2004). The ratio of tax revenue to GDP in the EU-27 in 2007 was 0.8 percentage points higher than its low of 40.1% in 2004. The increase recorded in recent years was not strong enough to restore the ratio to its 1999 level. [+]
