People in Slovakia will work 156 days this year for the taxman, which is an extra eight days when compared to last year. The Deloitte consultancy company has calculated that the so-called Tax Freedom Day will fall on 6th June this year, the TASR newswire reported.

On 155 and 159 days respectively, taxpayers in Spain and Ireland will work a similar number of days to pay off their tax obligations.

The lowest number of days after which people begin earning for themselves will be in Bulgaria (122) and Romania (125). Meanwhile, Luxembourg (272 days), Belgium (212), Denmark (210) and France (209) are at the opposite end of the scale.

Tax Freedom Day is a simple and straightforward representation of the tax burden in the economy, said Deloitte.
