Hello! im just wondering about a thing, in Sweden the state take about 35% of our salary. We also pay 25% on every ithem we buy in the stores except for grocerys, thats 7% tax.

So what's the rate in America? Everyone is talking about how low it is over there compared to Sweden...
Every state is different. I live in NJ, where the rate is 7%, except for items like groceries or clothing, which aren't taxed.

WOW!! How much tax do you pay of your salary?
Again, it's a little different for everyone. If I work full time, I get like $50 taken off a $300 gross a week.

Ah okey! I can't calculate what that is in % :/
It's about 16%. Every one who gets taxed pays different rates though. It depends on your job, how many tax breaks you get, and a lot of other things. The US is on a progressive tax system, too.
