Did a quick search.

Found this (US) site but the taxes all look strangely familiar......

http://www.gold-eagle.com/editorials_01/stott021001.html

There are taxes on payroll, personal property, pensions, severance, Social Security, corporation, stock transfer, tobacco, tonnage, transportation, utilities, accumulated earnings, ad - valorem, alcoholic beverages, amusements, apparel, business, capital gains, consumption, corporate income, dividends, employment, estate, excise, franchises, fuel, furnishings, gas, sales, gift, gross receipts, health care, holding company, income, inheritance, land, license, life insurance, luxuries, motor oil, motor vehicle, occupation, operators license, and the list of taxes can go on and on. Sales taxes at the local level are usually four to eight times higher than when I was a youth, and property taxes, especially in the east, can be a couple of hundred dollars a month for a small, rather ordinary home.

One (of many) interesting snippets:

The National Taxpayer's Union says taxes have gone up 175,000% in the last 83 years. :gasp: :gasp: :gasp:

Taxed on savings, even taxed on Jobseekers allowance!

The only tax I am knowingly paying right now is VAT on items from shops, fuel tax, alcohol tax and road tax (although I'm not renewing the disc). I have stopped banking, and stopped paying income tax.
