Taxpayers will have to work 153 days to be able to pay all taxes to the state, the Deloitte company informed.
Tax Freedom Day takes place on June 2 this year.
"Slovakia ranks 11th in total rankings, which means that it belongs among countries with a lower total tax burden," said Ľubica Dumitrescu of Deloitte, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
Nevertheless, moving the day by three compared to last year suggests that the tax burden is gradually growing, she added.
Tax burden for businesses
A number of amendments to tax regulations each year leads to the business community being unable to quickly cope with all the changes in real time, Dumitrescu claimed.
Many of the tax changes thus seem to be unsystematic and burdening, she added.
"They must handle a massive amount of duties, while many have a negative impact on their business in the form of high costs," Dumitrescu explained, as quoted by TASR.
Slovaks will work, more or less, the same amount of days as the Poles, Spaniards and Irish to pay taxes. French and Belgian taxpayers will work the longest. By contrast, Romanians and Bulgarians will spend the least time at work to pay their taxes.
